And all we who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord who is The Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:17(NIV)
A few weeks ago while waiting on a flight in Huntsville I thought I saw a gentleman who looked like actor Ricky Gervais. For those who do not know him he is in the upcoming Muppet movie releasing this spring. This is only little old Huntsville, Alabama but it is possible a celebrity could be in our midst. I saw his face and it turned out to not be him but he could have been his stunt double.
Why are some people so caught up by "famous people"? Concert halls are packed out to see Taylor Swift or Tim McGraw. Why aren't we as excited about the King of kings and Lord of lords? He is the most famous ever. These people who are mega talented got their gifts from God and still put their pants on the same way we do. We are not to be idolizing them, but we do. Look at the sales of celebrity magazines. Why do we care?
I challenge you to turn your eyes upon Jesus and look full in His wonderful face!
PRAYER: It is my desire to start looking to you more than to look up to "famous people". Forgive me when I give more attention to fame than to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
