December 24

For those of you who love glitter and sparkle, today is for you, and if you are an unbeliever, it may be your day to change. I’ve been studying in the book of Luke for a while, and I tend to get stuck on verses that catch my attention. Here’s the verse of the day for me:

While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. Luke 24:4

These were angels from Heaven telling Jesus’s followers, the women, the good news that he had risen. The word dazzling dazzles me! The King James says shining, and other verses describe it as a brilliant white. I can picture this as being glittery, mother-of-pearl sparkles. Their clothing was kingdom apparel! What we see here on earth is nothing like we will see in Heaven. I love beautiful things. I love my home to look good, my clothing to look good, my yard, and everything perfectly groomed. I could never live in hell or any other dark and dreary place. Jesus is the picture of perfection; though perfectionism can become a sin if you dwell on it too much, the perfectionism of the heart is the desired quality of a Christ-follower. If you want beauty and perfection, you have no choice; Jesus is the only way to achieve that goal. He will cleanse your heart and make you a perfect being in the eyes of God. Wrap yourself in Jesus today so that you will become a picture of ideal beauty.
