'WHAT WILL HE SEE?'

"While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear" - 1 Peter 3:2
.
One of the major things that captures the attention of men in women is their outward appearance. And women gives attention to three things: the outward adornment of plaiting of hair, putting on of apparel and the wearing of gold.
.
It is good to care for the outward appearance but much attention should be focused on your chaste conversation (conduct) coupled with respect. 
.
How a woman looks may capture a man's attention but what keeps a man attracted to a woman is her character. 
.
A woman's outward appearance may be affected. The hair can be damaged, jewelry can be stolen, clothes may be tampered with but a godly character she possess can't be affected. 
.
What makes up a godly character? How can a woman learn respect? 
.
Character is a notable trait that makes up a person which defines his or her deed and reaction to certain issues of life. However, a godly character is a God-like traits manifesting in a person's life which defines their deeds and reaction to the issues of life. 
.
Jesus is the model of God's character. You 

can't manifest a godly character if Jesus is not in you. It is easy to highlight the traits that makes up a godly character but to express it, you need to be born again, filled with the Holy Spirit and have the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in you. 
.
When a man is attracted to your godly character coupled with your fear (respect), you'll discover that no outward appearance from any source will catch his fancy. If a strange woman will lure a man into sin, she achieves that through her character (cunning).
.
It's only the Holy Spirit that can enable you to express godly character, whether you're a man or woman.
