Strutting across campus, Sarah Jane is clad in low-cut tight-fitting jeans, a short form-revealing sweater, exposing most of her midriff, and high heels. She, like most of her friends, is engulfed in the all-about-me New Age culture of the times and looking for love and security in all the wrong places.
Fast forward five years and now Sarah Jane, by the love and grace of God through the faithful witness of a friend, is a new creation in Christ Jesus. His Spirit working through His Word, which she is reading and meditating upon in her regular quiet times and in a weekly Bible study with new- found friends, is daily transforming her thinking and subsequent actions (Romans 12:2).
Recently she was convicted to, not only go through her book and music collections, but also her closet, discarding much of her wardrobe which no longer reflected her new identity in Christ. Don’t get me wrong. She doesn’t dress like a monk in a monastery, but she is no longer brazenly sensual and immodestly attired. Secure in Christ and empowered by His Spirit, no longer controlled by the flesh and the surrounding culture, she is becoming what she was created to be, a beautiful woman in Christ Jesus, clothed in His righteousness and adorned with a gentle and quiet spirit (I Peter 3:4) -- and modest apparel (I Timothy 2:9).
