A Holy Makeover

The purpose of Jesus' death on the cross wasn't to provide fire insurance or an all-expenses-paid trip to heaven. He died and rose again so we could be made new. So we wouldn't have to stay in our trespasses and sins, tangled up by our emotions, hurts, and past disappointment. He did it so we could be "transformed into his likeness," Paul says in 2 Corinthians 3:18. No longer must we hide behind a veil of shame. Instead, with "unveiled faces" we "reflect the Lord's glory...with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord." Don't be conformed to this world, Paul tells us in Romans 12, but be transformed.
