Copied from my sister, Susan Matthew.
I loved it,I just had to share!
Once a Pastor was preaching about HOLINESS inside AND out.
A brother interrupted the Pastor and asked this question:
” When you eat a banana, what do you eat? The inside? Or the outside?”
The Pastor answered him, “The inside.”
The brother responded back to him, “So God is more concerned with what is on the inside (the heart) than what is on the outside (appearance).”
The Pastor immediately received a Word from God and asked the brother this question,
“When you go to buy bananas, what do you notice first? The inside? Or the outside?”
The brother said, “The outside.”
The Pastor replied, “Right, because Holiness IS inside AND outside. Having a clean heart is important!
But dressing modestly, forsaking vanity as children of God is also important because IT REFLECTS YOUR HEART.”
In addition, here’s something the Lord Jesus told Me (Rachael) about modesty and outward holiness.
He said,”How can light be called light if it looks like the darkness?
What did you think I meant when I said you are the light of the world?Is the world going to look at your heart and know you are my children?No!The world will look at your dressing,conduct, behavior,and speech.Therefore I want holiness in EVERYTHING!”
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE IN THE WORLD FILLED WITH DARKNESS OF SIN!
