Well, in case you havenâ€™t noticed, extreme makeovers are still all the rage these days. No less than a dozen reality t.v. shows are based on this principle of taking something ordinary, or maybe even hideous, and turning it into something magnificent and beautiful and stunning.
Why are these shows so popular? Because over 80% of singles secretly wish that they could have a makeover on at least one part of their body. And The Extreme Makeover show was just one of those programs where you could see tummy tucks, face lifts, liposuction, collagen treatments, hair replacement therapy and nose jobs. Phew!
The Author of Extreme Makeovers
If you’re a feeling just a little bit discouraged and physcially undesireable today, please remember that God does not make mistakes, and He knew exactly what He was was doing when he made the one and only you. As the David says in Psalm 139, you were “fearfully and wonderfully made.” I guess when you get right down to it, the kind of extreme makeover we really need is not one of the body, but of the heart.
The good news here is that God is in the business of taking hopeless, ordinary sinners, and making them over into something beautiful and great in His kingdom. Now that’s what I call the ultimate extreme makeover.
