Wanted: a woman with Angelina’s arms, Jennifer Lopez’ butt, Jennifer Aniston’s hair, Courtney Cox’s beauty spot, the flexibility of an Olympic gymnast and Jessica Alba’s legs.
No, as far as I know, that ad hasn’t been published anywhere. Thank goodness. But as I have been reviewing Setting Captives Free and sharing my experience with the In His Image study, I began to wonder: what image am I trying to portray? Truthfully, I’m not all that familiar with any of the aforementioned women, but I do see the tabloid covers at supermarkets. And I have never actually tried to imitate another woman’s physique, but I have obviously been obsessed with my own perception of the “perfect body.”
I am so excited to see and feel the changes in my thoughts as I work through this study. It’s supernatural. Yes, Christ calls us to transform our minds – it takes work. But, He gives us all the tools we need for life and godliness and therefore to be obedient to this command. Through the simple act of obedience, putting my head and heart into His word, my face on the floor and my hand in His, I am changing! I can’t help but be transformed into the image of the one on whom I focus.
I strongly encourage you to enroll in one of the Setting Captive Free studies. No human being, this side of heaven, is so free that he cannot benefit from one of these courses. Choose a Bible study if you’re not sure where to start. There are self-paced studies offered on The Cross, Onward Christian Soldiers, Glorifying God, Philemon, Psalm 1 and Ruth. The site is available in nine different languages. You have no excuse!
