A Divine Make-Over

and (you) have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. (Colossians 3:10)


Have you ever had a make-over? I recently had a make-over of sorts. As a birthday gift, my children took me for a bra fitting. Now, if you’ve never done this before, let me tell you, it is a very humbling experience. The process is generally uncomfortable, sometimes even painful. But here’s the point I want to make; the consultant didn’t show me how to make my old bra look better, she didn’t make adjustments so it would fit better or wear better. No, she had me take it off and get rid of it. She gave me a brand new bra. It was an amazing thing. I didn’t just look different, I felt different, carried myself differently. I walked into that store with one body and walked out with another; I was a changed woman!

When we submit ourselves to Christ, He gives us a spiritual make-over. He begins by getting rid of the old woman, and patiently, lovingly, He transforms us into the woman He intends us to be.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come”. It’s important to know this because without 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 4:1 wouldn’t be possible.

The core focus of “What It Means To Be A Christian” is all about God’s perfect plan of redemption. Remember, he has called us to “be holy for He is holy”. This week, in Ephesians 4, Paul tells us that we are to walk in a manner worthy of the call to which we have been called. In order to live the life we’ve been called to – to walk worthy, we must first be transformed. We need a divine make-over.
