Coal into diamonds

A post from Tim Stevens, Leading Smart on Real Worship reminded me of this.

I am a sucker for talent shows. I love X factor and American Idol. I know ts sad. So a few weeks ago I got into "Britain's Got Talent". Eventually Paul Potts a mobile phone salesman won. This very ordinary looking guy came on and literally blew everyone away singing opera. One of the judges said the experience was like turning coal into diamond.

I am so thankful that Jesus is in the business of making diamonds. He takes very ordinary people and invites us on an incredible journey to transform us into his likeness. The journey is full of twists and turns, of successes and failures but he is always with us encouraging and assisting.

The thing is he sees past the flaws we have and already sees the diamond we can become.

The following video surprised the judges and me. What have you inside you that God wants to bring out that will surprise yourself?
