2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.
3 And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?
4 And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.

Nakedness refers to the absence of clothing, and it also
refers to the wearing of only underwear. It simply means being inadequately or
inappropriately dressed. To be naked is to be bare, lightly dressed or to wear
skimpy, revealing or insufficient clothing. These days, people are obsessed
with showing off their wealth through fashion. As heroes and mentors too many,
the rich and famous tend to influence a lot of people to follow their
footsteps. Unfortunately, this platform is being used to promote nudity in
fashion. If you look at the world today, a greater percentage of fashion styles
reflect nakedness, particularly in western countries.
If the lady’s cleavage is not exposed, the dress is viewed
as old-fashioned. If the skirt is not short, such that the lady can’t sit down
comfortably without having to cross her legs or continually draw down her skirt
to cover her laps, it is not fashionable. If the man’s trousers are not super
tight, it is not fashionable. It is however sad that instead of the world to
look to the church for healthy and sensible fashion inspiration, the church is
copying the world, which is why indecent and provocative dressing is
commonplace in the church of God today. You will go to some churches and wonder
whether you are in a brothel. Christ has called us to walk in love, so if you
know that you dress seductively and this could cause someone to stumble in
lust, you better have a rethink. What is your motive when you say you want to
dress to kill? If you want to make heaven, you must judge your motives and
actions by the word of God and make necessary adjustments.

The essence of clothing, first and foremost is to cover human nakedness. God is the first one who designed and provided clothes, and His primary purpose was to cover the nakedness of Adam and Eve after they attempted to sew fig leaves together as aprons to cover their nakedness (Genesis 3:21, Genesis 3:7). So many people today are wearing fig leaves and calling them clothes. For any clothing to be appropriate for a child of God, whether male or female, it must meet the standard that God set in the beginning by adequately covering human nakedness. Moreover, we are Christ ambassadors; an ambassador does not do anything that will tarnish the image of the country he or she represents.
As a matter of fact, an ambassador, positively projects the cultural heritage of his or her country always. The culture of the kingdom we belong to is holiness, righteousness and the fear of God, and we must project it in this world of sin and godlessness. Furthermore, we have the responsibility of making our body suitable for the Holy Spirit to dwell in (1st Corinthians 3:16). As the temple of God, defiling your body through nudity has consequences (1st Corinthians 3:17). Henceforth, dress as a worthy ambassador of God’s kingdom.
