Should Women Wear Pants?

Question: Are pants appropriate attire for a woman?

To answer this question, let us examine in more detail 1 Timothy 2:9: “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety . . .”
“Modest apparel” in the original Greek is “kósmios katastole”. Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words defines modesty, kósmios, as orderly, well-arranged, decent, modest. Modesty is also Biblically applied to one’s behavior and conduct.Read more

What the World Says About High Heels

Is the wearing of high heels in keeping with the Scriptural teaching of holiness, modesty, and humility?

Let the world itself answer this question.

“But heels that elongate the calf . . . now you’re talking. Heels not only add height, but they affect the way you move and how you feel . . . you are upright and primed. And when your body feels that way it is easier to act that way.”

Separated Unto the Gospel

Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.” —Romans 1:1

There is no greater call than to be a servant of Jesus Christ. It is an honor and a privilege to do the bidding of the King of kings and Lord of lords instead of pursuing the things of this world. Ministering to the lost and to the household of faith is not just a job or a career choice, it is a divine calling from the Lord.

The Spirit of the Lord is still calling saints to the work of the ministry. While every call of God is a little different, He is still looking for those who will fully consecrate their heart, time, and energy to the work of the gospel. Paul was separated unto the gospel of God. He was called to leave the course of this world and was set apart to fulfill a life-time call of ministry. There may be a time and place in the Lord for part-time ministry but there is no place for part-time consecration. There remains a need in this present generation for ministers to separate themselves from the cares that bind them to this world and give themselves entirely to the gospel efforts at home and abroad.

If you have been called of God and have been separated unto the gospel, be of good courage and stay faithful in time of need, for your Master will take care of you.
