Fashioned for Holiness
"As far as I'm concerned, leopard is a neutral" and definitely one of my favorite prints. Leopard print may translate as being bold and feisty, though, interestingly, my personality is quite the opposite as being understated, quiet and reserved. I so enjoy beautiful pieces of clothing and its unspoken ability as modes of expression to make fashion statements to the world.
When I was reading the book of Ezekiel in the Bible, I was astounded to discover that clothes also have the ability to carry the power, holiness, and presence of God. The priests in Ezekiel had to remove their clothing and change into regular clothes after spending time with God and ministering, otherwise they would transmit holiness to the people with their clothes. The anointing of God is so strong, wow!
"And when they go out into the outer court to the people, they shall put off the garments in which they have been ministering and lay them in the holy chambers. And they shall put on other garments, lest they transmit holiness to the people with their garments." – Ezekiel 44:19
When we spend time with the Creator of ALL the universe, His power not only infuses us, but even radiates through our clothing. The leopard coat that I'm wearing may make a bold statement, but, truly, the Bible says that the righteous are as BOLD as lions (Proverbs 28:1).
So here's to being fashioned for holiness, modeling God's presence, and living boldly for Jesus.
