jovem_piedosa VESTIDO DE NOIVA MODESTO Antes que você inicie sua busca entusiasmada pelo vestido perfeito de noiva ou de madrinha, queremos encorajá-la a considerar uma pergunta que provavelmente você não ouvirá de um vendedor: “A escolha deste vestido trará glória a Deus?”
Sabemos que seu desejo é fazer de Deus o foco do dia do seu casamento. A Palavra de Deus diz, em 1 Timóteo 2.9-10, “As mulheres se ataviem com traje decoroso, com modéstia e sobriedade… (como convém a mulheres que fazem profissão de servir a Deus) com boas obras”. Nós, pastores, desejamos ajudá-la a descobrir como aplicar a Palavra de Deus até mesmo no dia do seu casamento.
Em primeiro lugar, por favor, considere o propósito do dia do seu casamento
Albert Mohler nos lembra: “O objetivo do culto de um casamento é demonstrar a glória por meio da união de um homem e uma mulher em pureza, monogamia e fidelidade diante Dele; ser obediente aos seus mandamentos e receber todos os presentes e dons inclusos na aliança matrimonial”. [1]
Em segundo lugar, por favor, considere as seguintes perguntas ao escolher vestido para o casamento
1) Este vestido reflete o fato de que a cerimônia do meu casamento é um momento santo de adoração? (Nossa cultura considera cerimônias de casamento algo como um desfile de moda. Você tem a oportunidade de chamar a atenção para alguém bem mais importante do que você: nosso Salvador, Jesus Cristo).
2) Posso me imaginar usando este vestido por um extenso período de tempo apenas a alguns passos de distância do meu pastor enquanto ele abre a Bíblia e me guia durante meu voto matrimonial?
3) Eu usaria um vestido (ou outra roupa) tão revelador quanto este em um culto normal ou em qualquer outra ocasião?
Finalmente, aqui estão algumas sugestões práticas de como escolher um vestido de noiva ou madrinha:
1) Encontre um vestido com um decote discreto.
2) Procure vestidos que não deixem suas costas à mostra.
3) Lembre-se de que vestidos do tipo tomara-que-caia ou com alças muito finas são reveladores demais e provavelmente não servem aos homens que participarão do seu casamento. FONTE: C. J. Mahaney (Ed.). Mundanismo: Como resisitir à sedução de um mundo caído.

chapterandverse_ "Living the Cross-centred Life" ~ C.J . Mahaney The moment life was created, God already had His story and Our Story on Earth planned out with a great purpose. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God loves us so much, He sent His own Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross and pay the penalty for our sins. The Son was not forced to die for us, it was all God's plan. He forsaked His own Son for us. Which Father would sacrifice His own Son for another? Only our Father in Heaven ️ Praise the Lord! #chapterandverse #CJmahaney #livingthecrosscenteredlife #christianbooks #topbooks #Hisgrace #glory #truth #jesus #hope #christ 3mon

freely_fit_and_beautiful "Sinclair Ferguson writes that our use of the tongue 'is the hinge on which the door into our souls swings open in order to reveal our spirit. In effect, our words are like so many media people rushing to file their reports on the condition of our soul.' What do your words reveal about your spirit? What reports are your words filing about the condition of your soul?" Humbling to read...frightening to think about.

  •   agruscyk The Prodigal God...one of my all time favourites. 8mon
  •   briannabell11 We must have similar book taste u have and read both. Worldliness was very practical and helpful!! 8mon
  •   briannabell11 I have** 8mon
  •   meredithmart I'm curious about Worldliness - I'm often very discussed with how my patterns of thinking are so twisted with worldly concepts. 8mon
  •   meredithmart @emmorrice did you read 'Women of the Word'? Thoughts? 8mon
  •   emmorrice I did @meredithmart ! Loved it. You're familiar with inductive bible study so it won't be all new for you but really fuels the teaching that women need to love God with our minds and not just our hearts and very practical ways to do that. We have bought 15 copies to give to women in our church and need to get more! The author (@jenwilkin ) also has a blog and great bible study audio you can find online. Think you'd enjoy it! 8mon
  •   emmorrice @meredithmart just began Worldliness last night so I'll report back! Living in Montreal I especially feel almost assaulted with worldliness haha! Everyone is always on top of every trend. Think it'll be good for me :) 8mon
  •   meredithmart Thanks for the extra info about @jenwilkin 's blog. I liked the first two chapters (sample handed out at tgc) and wondered if she did cover the inductive bible study method. 8mon
