On average, ninety-three million selfies are posted per day, and ten selfies are posted to Instagram every ten seconds. Some are funny, some are sweet, and some go way too far. The bottom line is, we have major self-image issues. With the use of filters and other creative apps, we can pretty much manipulate our image into whatever we want. Some people spend tens of thousands of dollars on trying to make themselves look like someone famous. Because they are not happy with what they look like, they work relentlessly on copying someone else’s look. My question is; if you can accomplish a perfect look-alike, what have you gained? The truth is nothing. It would not change anything other than a false image.
Why not spend your time copying an image that can change and transform everything about you from the inside out? Take a selfie that matters. I’m talking about becoming more like Jesus and conforming to His image. Let me share with you my selfie scripture.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV)
18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Let me encourage you to take off the world’s filters of what they think you should be. Let the Spirit of God become a filter, so you can see yourself covered with Grace instead of shame. Only the mercy of God can take away the blemishes of your past and make you look brand new. Stop trying to look like someone that can’t change your yesterday. Work hard on looking like Jesus, then take a selfie that matters.
