As one who has been possessed of gray hair since college, I was particularly intrigued by the article I ran across from Popular Science. A cream developed for a skin condition called “vitiligo” helped to restore lost pigment in the skin of some of those suffering from it. Researchers believe it might do the same thing for those with gray hair. The theory is that those with gray hair have too much hydrogen peroxide in their hair follicles and shafts. They believe this cream could reduce that and restore a person’s natural hair color (via FASEB Journal, http://www.fasebj.org).
Reversing gray hair, restoring bald hair, shedding those extra, stubborn pounds, and similar ambitions appeal to our vanity, but they are not necessary for our souls. Millions try product after product to address such perceived needs, willing to spend money and make sacrifices in such pursuits. After all, we want to do what we can to look our best.
Yet, the greatest need of every generation has a 100% success rate for every one who has ever obtained it. It goes beyond skin deep. It reaches to the soul. It may not change the outward appearance, but it renews the inner person (2 Cor. 4:16ff).
It is baffling that so many more do not move heaven and earth to address this true need. Many are unaware they suffer from it. So many more are in denial. Still others are not dedicated to doing what it takes to have it. The reasons are varied, but the majority do not want this cure.
Jesus’ blood. It cost Him His life to make it available (John 19:34). But, it is the unfailing cure (Eph. 2:13; Heb. 13:12; 1 Jn. 1:7; etc.). Long after these bodies have decayed and disappeared in the ground, it will be working for us. It has an eternal guarantee. You cannot beat that, but you definitely must have it!
