God's readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation's available for everyone! We're being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now, and is whetting our appetites for the glorious day when our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, appears. He offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark, rebellious life into this good, pure life, making us a people he can be proud of, energetic in goodness. Titus 2:11-14 (MSG)
A while back, I was at the local deli and there was a small group of elder women there talking with each other...
As I over heard one of them say, "I was at the beauty shop the other day and we were talking about how you were doing." She said to another at the table.
This sparked a thought about what a oxymoron of a statement that is, like you can go to a beauty shop and come out with something "new." Don't you come out the same person inside but just with a prettied up outside?
Many times we go to church and come out looking like Christians but with no real change inside. The first thing we learn as a Christian is how to look like a Christian. I encourage you today to look at your inside and ask yourself, am I the person that God wants me to be? Holy and living for God so that others can see both the outside and the inside that makes you an ambassador "and" a child of God.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
