How to dress modestly without looking drab.
How to dress modestly without looking drab.
Hi there! Come check out my new vlog on dressing modestly. This will be a new series with tips on how to dress modestly yet beautiful, not drab. I will be updating as often as I can, with a range of topics all related to modest fashion. Theology and lifestyle thoughts will remain here.
Today James posted in his Morning Meditation about his efforts and discouragement in the Tent of David project. It can be hard sharing news about the Jewish Messiah, and most churches do not want to hear it.
I know exactly what James means. I am not in the position that I may have an impact on a church, because I’m still just a young adult. But I have been working in my college ministries. And by working, I mean that I try to have God-focused conversations, and if I feel someone is ready I will share awesome stuff about Hebrew studies. I receive a variety of responses which is probably analogous to what you find among working adults. Some students are interested in the sense that they say “Oh, that’s cool, I didn’t know that,” but it does not actually inspire them to go deeper. A few people will argue with me, but they are the minority. But those few people are usually closer friends.
As I mentioned in a recent post, I want to include more about a “Hebrew” lifestyle on this blog. So I’ll be posting photos of myself, sharing examples of dressing modestly and beautifully.
Yes, as Peter/Kepha admonishes us, beauty is not in what we wear, but in the attitude of our heart. That said, it is still nice to look pretty. And what’s more, it’s a wonderful feeling to dress beautifully in a way that gives honor to YHWH.
I’ll be posting more pictures of me in head coverings and outfits in the future. Look for them!
I shared James’ post, Christianization of Acts 15, on Facebook, and a friend commented and it turned into a small exchange. First, he asked about the purpose of the Law, and why observe it if it’s a shadow of Jesus? After my response, he asked about whether or not I am Jewish, and if not what is my reason for following Torah. He also asked about going to a priest for certain functions, and such. I don’t want to quote his entire comment, but below is my response. It was something that I had been pondering anyway, so his question hit me at a time when I was prepared. Thanks Papa!
I am a gentile, and proud of it! Thank you for your questions. The question of why I observe Torah is something I am often asking myself, to make sure I’m on the right track. Why would a gentile who has salvation through Yeshua need Torah, or even WANT Torah?
So I want to purchase an Orthodox Jewish Bible, in fact I am about to. My reasoning is that I want a translation in which I can engage with the Hebrew words. I’ve been using the ISR Scriptures translation, which I love, but I want more Hebrew words.
Related books that came up on Amazon include Lost in Translation, and Hebrew Yeshua vs. Greek Jesus. So my question is: Has anybody read these, or other “Hebrew Roots” books? Are they good? Are they worth it? Or am I better off with the plethora of web materials available?
Thanks for your help! Shalom.
