What a Beauty
Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. Psalm 45:11
Wow, what a beautiful picture of what the church is to look like. Let the people of God exude the beauty of God, which means we need to let go of all that would do otherwise. The church represents to the world what honoring God looks like −for the people of God are the ones who bring the beauty of Christ to the world.
Most of the time, the church is criticized for its hypocrisy −People going to church and then living anything but beauty for the rest of the week. The church has gotten a bad rap for being less than people of integrity. The church, the people of God, are often viewed as being unaccepting and judgemental, which represents anything but beauty to the world.
However, we the church can allow the beauty of Christ to dwell so deeply within our hearts that we so readily reveal Him everywhere we go. The Lord dwells within, and the unity we experience with Him will be what spills over to the world we live in. This is a daily challenge, allowing His beauty to escape past our tendencies of being anything else. When we are ugly, its time to repent and see our responsibility for our actions, be blessed as you to continue to be a beauty!
