But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Around the world, people have tried many beauty treatments to enhance the glow on their faces. In Thailand, therapists slap their clients’ faces to increase blood circulation to the skin. Some Hollywood stars have their faces covered with caviar—fish eggs—known to be rich in vitamins A, B, and D. In Bible times, the primary cosmetic was olive oil.
But do you know there are some scriptural beauty treatments? Peter said that true beauty comes from “the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit” (1 Peter 3:4). Solomon said, “A happy heart makes the face cheerful” (Proverbs 15:13, NIV). Ecclesiastes 8:1 says, “A man’s wisdom makes his face shine.”
As we absorb God’s light, we’ll reflect Jesus to the world around us. We must constantly behold the glory of the Lord and be transformed into His image by the Holy Spirit. People will notice how different we are. Take a look in the mirror. Is your face reflecting Christ?
Character in a saint means the disposition of Jesus Christ persistently manifested. Oswald Chambers
