Seeds of Destiny 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional

Seeds of Destiny 24 April 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche

TOPIC: Be A Christian in Appearance

SCRIPTURE: And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. Acts 11:26.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You cannot claim to have given your life to Christ and dress like the people of the world.

MESSAGE: Sometime ago, I was in Lagos with my wife, Dr (Mrs) Becky Enenche for the 60th birthday celebration of our Mother in the Lord, Pastor (Mrs) Faith Abiola Oyedepo and we met a woman. This woman is a pastor’s wife and when I looked at how she was decently dressed, even without earrings, I asked her if she was a member of one particular denomination, but she said, No. When she told me the name of her church, I could hardly believe it. Then she began to explain that she had two drastic encounters that changed her life.

Prior to this time, she said that she was given to vanity and fashion. She would travel to Dubai to get the latest fashionable wears and make all manner of hairdos and go late to church eventually because of make-ups. Normally, she would begin to prepare her dressing for Sunday service from Thursday.

As she continued in this lifestyle without personal relationship with God, she had an encounter one day. While she was watching Dunamis Television and I was preaching, I said, “What has taken the place of God in your life?” All of a sudden, she was struck by guilt and she knew that it was fashion, gold and vanity that have taken the place of God in her life. Immediately, she disconnected from vain fashion and started dressing decently. People who knew her before were surprised and asked her if she had seen the vision of heaven and hell, and she told them of her encounter with God.

Beloved, you cannot claim to have given your life to Christ and dress like the people of the world. You cannot say Christ owns your life and your look cannot preach the gospel. If Christ really owns you, your look should reflect Christ and your words should match your looks. There are people who dress seductively and proactively claim to be Christians. That is not right.
Remember this: You cannot claim to have given your life to Christ and dress like the people of the world.

ASSIGNMENTS: Seeds of Destiny 24 April 2018
1. Do not dress in a way that contradicts who you are in Christ.
2. Decide to dress with dignity, decency and decorum.

QUOTE: Through your appearance, something can be cited about your life that can affect your identity, dignity, prosperity, mentality, beauty as well as your opportunity in the realm of the spirit. Culled from WHO ARE YOU? by Dr Paul Enenche.
