Dressed In White

Q. I have been ask to plan a Sunday when all the ladies in the church will wear white dresses. I feel that when this event is planned that the event should be based in scripture and have a scripture relevance and back ground;the wearing of white should symbolize or provide a link to help worshipers remember a meaningful/useful /encouraging/ promising verse or passage in scripture.

What do you have to guide me in planning this event so that all will want to participate because it encourages them to reflect on Jesus and the promises of life in salvation and heaven. I want this event to be structured so that it is viewed and felt as a Holy -Sprit filled worshipful event.

A. White is the color of purity and righteousness. Jesus was dressed in white at the transfiguration (Mark 9:2-3) There were some from the Church in Sardis dressed in in white walking with the Lord (Rev. 3:4) A multitude of tribulation martyrs is shown dressed in white in Rev. 7:9. Many believe the Bride of Christ will be clothed in white.

I would suggest you adopt Isaiah 61:10 as your theme.

“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”
