      BLESSINGS FROM THE HEART
      Pastor Cecil A. Thompson
      March 13, 2013
      APPEARANCES!
      Job 19:25-27
      For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!
      Recently I had the opportunity to see photographs of a person who was young healthy and full of vitality. You could visualize that they were full of fun and excitement. They were the kind of person you would like to know and have as a friend. Included was another photograph showing the same person following a catastrophic accident. The once attractive features were now twisted and swollen.
      Accidents or severe illness can so alter the appearance of an individual that it is hard to imagine that it was the same person. Although not as dramatic, the aging process also has the same effect. It is safe to conclude that our outward appearance can and does change, whether quickly or gradually.
      Having a background in Law Enforcement, I have been shocked to compare mug shots that are taken of a person who has been arrested. Those who are repeat offenders and especially those addicted to alcohol or drugs change in appearance in a relatively short period of time – and always for the worse. 
      What does this all mean? I believe that it reminds us that our outward appearance is destined to change. No amount of cosmetic surgery will help. The vital thing is what is taking place within our heart and soul. When we are born again our new life in Christ begins. We have started the wonderful journey to eternity that assures us of a new and eternal body that will never grow old. Wow! The ultimate make-over!
      Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
