But in spite of all their decorating, everyone knew it     was still a garbage truck. The décor was fun, but it didn’t     fool anyone.
         Sometimes, people try to “decorate” themselves in a    similar way. They do lots of good things, but no matter    how much they advertise how holy they are, it’s like    decorating a garbage truck. For someone to be a true    Christian, there’s got to be a conversion—which means a    complete change. When Jesus enters your life, it is like you    change vehicles and drive the opposite direction. In a sense,    you become a new person.
