How to shine with God’s glory
(Wives) do not let your adorning be external–the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear–but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
1 Peter 3:3-4
Have you ever known people who just glow? I’m talking about those men and women whose faces just glisten with Christ in their lives. And while their outward features, that is, their external beauty, may be great, the glory of Christ that shines through them is so much better.
You see, our world today has such a twisted and distorted view of beauty. That's why when you stand in line at the grocery store and look at the cover of those magazines, all you see is airbrushed and photoshopped pictures of people who look nothing like that in real life!
The truth is that God is making something beautiful out of your life if you are in Christ. And as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, the Bible says you are adorned like a beautiful bride. While there may be some spots on the outside, Christ has made you beautiful so that you might shine for Him forever.
So let me ask you this question: Where do you seek your beauty? Do you spend more time on your outward appearance or your inward condition? Follow God and He'll make you shine like the stars as He transforms you into His glorious bride.
IN CHRIST, GOD HAS TRANSFORMED YOU INTO HIS SPOTLESS BRIDE. SO LIVE EACH DAY BY REMEMBERING THAT TRUTH AND FINDING YOUR REAL BEAUTY IN HIM!
