May2 8 – Where Beauty is Beautiful
The day will come when those who needed salvation will see their Savior face-to-face. The beauty of His sacrifice, the loveliness of His forgiveness, the jaw-dropping splendor of having been released from the death grip of iniquity will not be lost of these.
No matter how "beautiful" will be our resurrected Lord in appearance, those who have believed will see the profound attractiveness of His redemption and the love that accomplished it.
For those who saw no beauty in having been ransomed from the grief of sin and the gall of having rejected God, for those who were “underwhelmed” in life by the magnificent, the exquisite love of God, His Presence will radiate the TRUTH of His beauty, and unbelief will not deflect the smallest glimmer of it.
When we consider these things, shall we not, here in Cor Unum, desire ONE THING upon the earth, and seek after it with all our hearts: that we may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of our lives, to behold His beauty - the composite grace and truth, righteousness and peace that form the contours of His face - and inquire in His temple?
