    Ha, what a hoot reba and wondering lol!
    Personally, I don't worry about what others wear too much. For myself, my work is business casual which means I wear nice jeans, decent shoes and a button up shirt with a collar. I don't wear anything less than that on Sunday morning. Evening is whatever including dirty torn jeans if I've been working on a project ect.. except a tank top. I won't wear a tank top

    Isaiah 61:3 KJV
    To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

    My natural pacemaker looks like a crucified man. The hidden man of the heart has on no clothes.

    Oh well. Leave it alone.

    Yeah.
    You like that heart thing.
    How's about posting it. I tried seeing that the last time we spoke of this, but no luck.

    God sees the heart ,
    Our heart is flesh, and not stone.

    Psalms 22:14 KJV
    I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

    Isaiah 52:14 KJV
    As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

    The natural heart is desperately wicked and deceitful. To change that stony heart into a heart of flesh required the crucifiction of Jesus. Slain from the foundation of the earth the imagery has always been with mankind.

    The blue lines are the man:
    Bones out of joint
    Head swollen (AV SA nodes)
    Hands warped by spike
    Feet warped by spike

    He accomplished what we could not do.

    No poet.

    Let us make man in our image the poets said.
    The Father said man should walk uprightly
    The pre manifested Son said I will show my death and their hope.
    The Spirit the Holy said man should have a mind will and emotions, and breathed into him, that he became a living soul.

    The new birth is much more abstract.

    Since when?? You live in a fantasy world. Great benefits and a place where jeans and business are mentioned in the same sentence. I said it before, and I'll say it again in all caps. DON'T EVER LEAVE THE JOB!

    I have not got a car so I ride my road bike to get around. I sometimes ride 20-35 miles to get to fellowship. I cannot do that in ordinary clothes without chafing; so I have to wear padded Lycra shorts. In other words, I turn up in my riding gear. I am sure the LORD does not mind.

    Maybe dress like you had an appointment to meet with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

    For the sake of discussion... Were the disciples specially dressed while in His company? Maybe not fair, bc they didn't pack a wardrobe, but do you think they were aware of what they wore? How about those who approached Him with the awareness that He was at least highly significant. Do you think they were concerned? We know the pharisees were, although I'm not sure this was of any value to Him. (I'm not comparing you to a pharisee.)

    And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed arethey which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
    10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    The great worship service.

    Mat 6:28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin,
    Mat 6:29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. (My bolding)

    I wore a suit every Sunday hen I was first saved, I was uncomfortable in Worship. As I grew in the Faith, I relaxed and when I learned of the relationship I was seeking to solidify, I became much more confident and if we examine the Ministry of our LORD I find Jesus dressing in the same manor as those He ministered to. So it is that today I wear Slacks and a colored dress shirt and I keep my mind off of what Joe and Jane Doe wear. The exceptions are when she wears a postage stamp skirt or a dress that, surely, has no more than a single yard of fabric and what they call their Dress leaves nothing to imagine. The best my wife ever looked, the sexiest, was when she

    I wonder what their Sunday best so-to-speak was for everyday fishermen and such? If I knew the president of the United States was stopping by for a visit, I think I would want to dress for the occasion. How much more value or importance does Christ have than our president (any president) have? I feel it is important to get cleaned up and presentable out of respect, honor, and reverence.

    What is the message given by those that dress like their going out looking to attract others in a nightclub? How about those that don't take the time to at least try to be presentable when they can? For some of course, their best may not be at the same par as others and those are not the ones I speak of.

    See my OP for my thoughts here. I guess my reasoning back in the day wasn't so original after all. :lol
    So, I have to shower before the worship service? Legalism!! (Just kidding)
