Breast Implant or cosmetic surgery or tummy tuck or makeup’s or Coloring Grey Hair is wrong because we use our body to attract in a wrongway.The people who does are saying indirectly that God did not do enough for them to look beautiful. This is the Satan’s deception in our society. “Beauty is not found in perfect measurements. You do not get it in a gym or beauty salon. It is not given by plastic surgery. Beauty is not the form and contour of the face. Beauty is not to be found hanging on the racks at Kohls, JC Penneys, or Marshals. It is not found in all the unrelenting pressure of the world to be skinnier and skinnier. It is found in God's school of cosmetology. It is something that God gives to you. It is something that never fades. It never gets wrinkles. It is the beauty of Jesus Christ within. It is the hidden man or woman of the heart, or a meek and quiet spirit.”
There are lots of women these days who wants to impress others become supermodel having a perfect shape, many of them will go to weight loss programs to make their shape beautiful. These women forget to shape spiritually by reading Bible, by attending church and associating with godly people, bringing up their family , by doing good things , by being a Godly examples and to lead others to Christ Jesus. They do anything to make their bodies beautiful and forget that their beautiful bodies don’t take them to heaven. Instead of spending lots of time for beauty and appearance, if they would have spent on Gods word it would have taken them to the gates of heaven atleast.Our Physical beauty will not be permanent as we get older and older, it fades. As we get older our appearance starts to change, our outer beauty begins to age as our inner beauty should become more beautiful. God sees our inner beauty, our heart and spirit. The devil, the head fashion designer, is undressing everyone who seeks the fashion of this world. We must watch out for anything that draws us away from God, including the too-often extreme emphasis the world places on appearances and we are not to think as the world does (Romans 12:2).
True feminine beauty is reflected in a godly woman she is fashionable in Gods eyes when she naturally accepts modesty. Through decent modesty we can be fashionable. The model woman described in Proverbs is a portrait of ideal womanhood. Woman who is called to be a mother and a wife, who takes the cross and purpose to live a godly life.
Godly Women who INSPIRE US in Biblical times are:
1. Mary- the mother of Jesus, for her availability to do whatever God wanted and a role model of the virtuous woman
2. Abigail – a woman of wisdom. She lived her life in a way gained much respect.
3. Dorcas - She lived a life of giving
4. Hannah was a woman who knew how to pray.
5. Lois and Eunice – the mother and grandmother of Timothy who laid a great foundation for a great life
6. Elizabeth – a supporter of those doing the will of God
7. Esther - courageous
8. Mary of Bethany – a role model of living by priorities
9. Sarah – a woman who believed God for something that was impossible
10. Ruth – a woman of virtue
All these Godly women dressed modestly which was pleasing and glorifying to God. As we become more like Him through faithfully following Him, our inner beauty starts to blossom and shine brighter. Esther or Abigail etc each of these women is described as beautiful but it is the beauty of their humility before God, their faithfulness to Him and their courage that make them remarkable.
Our delight should be natural beauty which God created. No matter how good our intentions might be, and no matter how much we might love the Lord, He IS concerned about our appearance, and about the kind of impression we make on those who comes in contact with. Scripture says that God is the only one who can see into people's hearts (1 Kings 8:39), and because of that, the believer's outward appearance, actions, and words must be consistently Christ like, if we're to make a real difference for Him in this world.
The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:31, “the fashion of this world passeth away.” Although clothes are not a perfect measure, they can speak a lot about one’s heart condition. The fashion industry is an industry that seems to hate morals.
As we see in this verse beauty doesn't last! With time it fades. Even the most perfect looking model will one day have to look in the mirror and realize that she doesn't meet the physical standard of beauty anymore. When she is much older with gray hair and wrinkles what will she be left with? Outer beauty will never last and is not worth the struggle. But there is another kind of beauty that will last forever. It is a beauty that comes from having a fear and reverence for God. That doesn't mean that you are trembling and are scared of God, but that you have an awesome respect for who He is and are willing to do whatever it is that He wants. You are a humble servant before God, a vessel willing to be filled, willing to display the light of Christ. This is the kind of beauty that will be praised. This is the kind of beauty that will shine outward and will draw people to want to know Christ in you.
So, where does this inner beauty that God wants us to have come from? Well, first you must let go of the worldly view of beauty that you may already have.
Romans 12:2 says, "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
Today, this Word of God means this: Let your adorning, let your attractiveness, not be centered in the outward adornment of your figure, of perfect white teeth, of spiking and dying your hair bizarre colors (green and purple), colors God never made for human hair. Let not your adorning be silicone implants, Barbie doll figure, tight skin, no lines on your face. Do not give undue attention to the external. But let your adornment be the hidden man of the heart. That is where beauty is to be found.
If you use cosmetics or hair color or dying hair , you can do it temporarily to hide your age, permanently one cant hide what God has created.Eventhough I am 33 yr old women I have lots of white hair, I don’t color my hair because I love how God created me. I am not afraid or shamed of my aging or my white hair. I do not want to hide my real age either by makeups, and other cosmetics. We need to glorify God by honoring what He created, instead of trying to conceal it. I don’t believe false perceptions of beauty which the fashion world or Friends describes. True Beauty is not defined by anything in this world, but found in something that is beyond this world. God's Word is reminding every woman that outward beauty is temporal, but inner beauty from godly character and spirit is imperishable.
We need to Start renewing our mind to God's view of beauty that is defined through His Word. In Galatians 5:22-23, it says, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law."
When our external beauty fades away with old age, these are the inner qualities that we will be left with, ones that will last a lifetime. This is true beauty
We compare ourselves to what is considered a beautiful woman, always stressing about our physical appearance. True beauty lies in our spirit, the part of us that God sees and feeds. The sooner we take a stand and accept who we are, and are happy with how God created us, the sooner we will see past what others think and truly understand what a beautiful woman is.
First, the Bible does not deny the value of a good appearance and a concern for health. Second, the Bible places the emphasis on inner beauty over physical beauty.
Modesty describes a demeanor that expresses itself in self-respect, discretion, and the avoidance of extremes; based on the fact that we are children of God and representatives of our Lord.
The Bible says, "Don't depend on things like fancy hairdos or gold jewelry or expensive clothes to make you look beautiful. Be beautiful in your heart by being gentle and quiet. This kind of beauty will last, and God considers it very special" (1 Peter 3:3-4;)
The world focuses on what people look like on the outside. God focuses on what people look like on the inside. Do you put more time and effort into being pretty on the outside or the inside?
The media has set this standard of beauty by using magazines and television ads to persuade women in what to wear and how to look to fit this model of what they believe is true beauty. This standard is one that women find hard to attain, because in reality the image that is shown to them is one that is false.
I have seen many women fall into the trap of accepting our culture's standard of beauty, so that they can fit into a world where they were called to stand out. It is often done in the effort to attract a man or to draw people to them based upon how they look. Some Christian women will even go as far as to disregard a modest way of dressing for one that is more enticing to the eye. Then when their beauty fails to attract they decide to change something, hair, clothes, face, whatever they can change to bring attention upon themselves while never having a true standard for beauty. Therefore neglecting what God says in His word is most important for beauty.
Makeup is associated with seduction in Jeremiah 4:30, where Israel is described as a woman to whom the Lord asks: "Why dress yourself in scarlet and put on jewels of gold? Why shade your eyes with paint? You adorn yourself in vain. Your lovers despise you." Enhanced beauty through makeup would not deliver her from her enemies. The same ideas are expressed in Ezekiel 23:40.
Peter's point is that Christian women should give more attention to developing a beautiful spirit than a beautiful body. The wise Christian woman, while not neglecting her outward appearance, will pay more attention to making her inner person beautiful. God's grace, in other words, gives people an inner beauty. This inner beauty has its own results: it often attracts those who are opposed to the gospel
The best beauty treatment for a woman is a few hours in the presence of God.” Today, beauty product marketing represents an almost $17 billion-per-year business in the U.S., with an annual expenditure per person of about $100.Another way He wants to free us from an unhelpful focus on our outward appearance is to grow our understanding of true and lasting beauty, and to focus on cultivating this. Real and enduring beauty according to God has everything to do with who we are.
Wearing makeup is all about looking better, and therefore feeling better about ourselves. If, by wearing makeup, we please ourselves with our appearance, we are engaging in vanity, and in feelings of pride, which the Bible warns against.
Here is what the scriptures say:
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful, I know that full well.Psalm 139:14
As women we are created in his image to reflect his beauty. It is a beauty that comes not from the outside, but from within. You are the bride of Christ, he desires YOU, your inner beauty and for you to love him every day of your life.
1 Peter 3:3-4 "Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.
Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight."
Proverbs 31:30:"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
Again there are many women and men want to hide their grey hair by dying or colouring, this is what the Bible says”
Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained by living a godly life. Proverbs 16:31
The Bible warns us not to be vain or conceited (Philippians 2:3-4) and not to draw attention to ourselves by the way we look (1 Timothy 2:9).
