"I will cleanse you from all your impurities." Ezekiel 3626

Each morning I pursue the same routine. My time spent at the mirror applying makeup has become a longer process with each passing year. The creams, lotions, powders and such line my bathroom counter, making me wonder if it is really all worth it. Then I look in the mirror, and decide, yes, think I had better have a go at it today! Alas, the process begins. But now, Praise God, I have a new vision flowing through my mind as the process proceeds. Let me share it with you.

Just as I put on the armor of God each day, now also will I don my face with Holy Scripture:1. Cleansing is the first procedure, and I will remember Ezekiel 36:25,26: "I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh."2. Next comes the wrinkle cream. I will apply the cream of wisdom ("Wisdom brightens a woman's face and changes its hard appearance. Ecclesiastes 8:1-b)3. Now is the time for foundation. Let me go to I Peter 3:34: "Remembering to cover my face with the attitude of my disposition" (hopefully, a Godly one).4. I want to powder with purity and blush with happiness: "A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face." Proverbs 15:13. I then apply the lip gloss of love, remembering I Corinthians and all that it tells me, and finish with a big smile, knowing that God has been remembered this morning, as I applied Biblical truths as well as cosmetics.

I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment as a robe and a diadem. Glory to God!

Jesus is Lord!

I love 1 Corinthians.

It is wonderful to know that we are cleansed of our sins and have eternal life. Thank you Jesus!

"So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: Death is swallowed up in victory. O Death, where is your sting? O hades, where is your victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 15:54-58, NKJV).

"We shall not all sleep, but shall all be changed-in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet" (1 Corinthians 15:51, NKJV).
