I was priviledged to go to Catalyst this year. A leadership conference in Atlanta. It was 2 days packed full of great information. I have taken away many of the things I heard and have continued to process through it and apply it to my life.
One of the speakers spoke on how we are to reflect the beauty of Christ. I’ve heard that many times in my life but he gave the illustration of that show Extreme Home Makeover. He illustrated the moment when the deserving family gets a look at their new home. The bus moves and the show doesn’t cut straight to the home showing all its bells and whistles…the camaras go straight to the faces of the family. The joy, the tears, the happiness, the awe, the thankfullness, the excitement, the hope….How they feel about the house is relfected on their faces.
When we have spent time with the true Hope, it should reflect on our face. His beauty should be reflected through us. I want that. I want to reflect the beauty of the Magnificant.
