In reality what people need - what all of us need - is not an external make-over but an inner transformation. Our deepest flaws cannot be corrected cosmetically. They are directly related to who we are in heart and mind, and they reveal how far we have fallen from the image of God in which we were created. But such transformation is beyond any human ability to accomplish.
Only Christ offers us true transformation- not just a facelift, or an outward adjustment. Paul said that those who have been raised to eternal life in Christ " have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him -COLOSSIANS 3:10 ).
New ! What a tremendous word full of hope! Christ transforms us into new people in Him --people with a new heart, not fixed up to look good on the outside!
If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, Old things have passed away; behold all things have become new 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17).
'The Spirit develops in us the clear image of Christ.
