God has a deep, wonderful, and extremely fulfilling message for us in the area of beauty!
When we think of beauty and we often think of things that our eye can see… But, our goal should be to learn to see and value true beauty as God sees it.
We live in a world that focuses on the external – they have no hope of eternity. It only results on shallow, temporary happiness or feeling good – and a surface beauty that quickly fades with time and age. 1 Peter 1:24 tells us, “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass.”
The Lord (the One we love and are seeking to please) focuses on the internal – His plan of redeeming us from our sins and changing us into the image of Jesus. This results in true beauty - a lasting joy, peace, radiance in our life - and eternal impact on the lives of others! 1 Samuel 16:7, “For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart."
Together we are going to look at what true beauty is - and living in the fulfillment of seeking to be beautiful to the Lord!
