I will be honest....

You are ugly.

You are ugly.

You are ugly.

You are ugly.

With your fat hanging out, you are ugly. With pants that are to tight or to low, you are ugly. By wearing your PJ's in public you are ugly. By not washing your hair or taking a bath you are ugly. Through wearing a shirt that is to low you are ugly. With a sculptured shirt that shows every bulge you are ugly.

You are ugly.

You are ugly.

You are ugly.

You are ugly.

Don't get me wrong I want to be loving to you, so that is why I'm telling you the truth. Dressing slutty or in an extremely tacky manner doesn't make one lovely, in fact it does the apposite, causing you to look cheap and (perhaps worse is most girl's minds) fatter then you actually are. So please don't be a sheep, ignore the poptarts, the glitzy stars, instead dress to suit your body type, dress with quite style, with restraint, with true fashion. Wear things that aren't to tight, to low and just plain ugly, just because it is the fashion doesn't mean it's smart or lovely.

But.

Perhaps your heart is ugly as well. That is something to think about. Have you ever? If you are beautiful on the outside but black and diseased within what use is the outside? What about when you walk into eternity, will it do you much good if you are perfect as a model? What, or who, will help you?

I have the answer.

But it isn't one for those who don't want to give their lives away, who don't want to give up "me" and give in to Him. Who wish to save their lives but in the end will loose them.

Sooner or later death comes to us all, if he is coming for you now are you prepared to meet him? Are you ready to stand in God's presence (because you surely will) and be called to account? Who will you call upon to stand before you so God's righteous wrath isn't poured out on your head? Is Jesus Christ, the Lord of Heaven and Earth, your defender and cleanser?

Be honest, are you a "good" person? A holy person? A clean and pure person? These are the most important questions so, please don't lie....ooops....right there is sin sneaking out. If you aren't fully honest in answering these questions you are already sunk. Have you ever lied? Stolen (a pen, a paper clip...a cookie)? Lusted? .... .... .... ... ... ... ... ...

If you have done any of these things then you are a Grade A sinner, committed to eternity in hell unless otherwise reprieved. And that reprieve can only come through Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God, who came to earth as a man, lived a sinless life, was crucified on the cross, died and rose again three days. He lives on in heaven and offers salvation to all who call on His name and confess their need for a savior.

Salvation, now isn't that a beautiful word?

If you want to know more about Jesus Christ and His love for you read the book of John in the New Testament. It is worth taking a few hours over.
