Are The Changes In Your Life Hot?

"You look great. What did you do different?" my friend asked as we walked out of the Sunday morning service.
"Everything!" I replied, smiling.

"You look HOT!" Bible study...another an afterthought she said "Is it okay for two middle-aged married women to say that to each other" and we both laughed.

'Everything' was different. New glasses, new hair color with highlights, wearing makeup which I rarely do and, most of all, I felt good about what had changed.

Our Loving Lord wants us to look "HOT" spiritually as well. How do we do that? We let Him change us from the inside out. We let Him change our attitudes. We follow His Word. Especially the 'one another' commands: Love one another, be kind to one another, serve one another, comfort one another, encourage one another, pray for one another.

So many of us spend many hours and way too many dollars trying to look good to the world. I wonder what our world would be like if we spent those hours and dollars on not only trying to look spiritually good to the world but also being spiritually good in the world.

Little Lesson Life Expression
What changes will you make today to be spiritually hot? Will you spend more time serving those in need? Will you let our Loving Lord change your negative attitude into a positive one? How will you change today to be hot for Him?

Romans 12:1-2 (The Message)

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
