It seems these days there are makeover shows for just about anything.  Extreme makeover (for a complete new house), while you are out (a room redecoration), what not to wear (cosmetic, hair and clothing) and today I saw a portion of restaurant impossible, a show that does a makeover of a restuarant.  We do makeovers of our bodies, houses and the places we eat at, why couldn’t we do a ‘spiritual makeover’? It seems that the one thing that is the most important to us, our relationship with Christ and growing in that relationship daily, is usually what gets left til last….end of the day or week.  We take time to get clean, get dressed, hair dryed, curled and fed and then out the door we go.  But do we take time to soak in/read God’s extreme makeover guidebook?  Not always.  So how do we go about doing that?  Well the first step is making a change.  I believe Paul called it a ‘new creation’.  2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! ”  If you haven’t accepted Christ, this is the first step.  When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, it is like we have had a makeover!  Once we were one way and now we are another.  Does this change happen overnight?  Well, no.  We have a changed heart, but we need to make changes in other areas of lives.  We do this by daily reading and soaking in God’s Word….His makeover guide.  We need to come to Him and bask in His presence.  While we hang out with God, we are convicted by the Holy Spirit.  He acts like a counselor to tell us what is right and what is wrong.  If you are unsure where to begin…may I suggest the Psalms. There are so many references to God’s Word in the Psalms and Proverbs and how important His Word is to us.  In Proverbs 23:12, the write encourages you to “apply your heart to instruction  and your ears to words of knowledge”.  These daily doses of instruction will help make you smarter about how you live this newly made over life.  With this makeover, people won’t whistle at your new looks or ooh and ahh over your newly decorated room, but they may see Jesus living in you and want to know more about your ‘spiritual beauty secret’.   Keep His Word, your makeover guidebook, as a set aside priority time in your life and in case people ask,”be ready to give an answer” (1 Peter 3:15) regarding the name of your makeover artist!
