Things below testify of things above

Before the snow yesterday I've been doing a lot of work outside.  Didn't take long before my skin was noticeably more tan that it was before.

When you spend a lot of time in the sun we all know that your skin starts to look different. Since things on earth testify or bare record of higher things I thought it merited some thought. If we abide in Christ as scriptures teach, would we begin to take on a somewhat different appearance? Would our countenance change from who's presence we spend time in?

We can't look directly into the mid day sun without hurting our eyes.  The light intensity is too much. But we benefit, find joy, and can see from the presence and indirect effects of the sunlight.

If things below testify of things above than we needn't look further than our own front yard or our own skin to learn interesting truths.
