Beautiful

Hello, God has given me something in Psalms 45:11 which says,

“Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; 
    honor him, for he is your lord.”

The Sons of Korah are writing. The Psalmist was talking to “daughter”. He says to let the king be enthralled by her beauty. He told her to honor the kind, for he was her lord. So, this daughter was beautiful, and she was to honor the king, and let him be enthralled by her beauty.

We were not beautiful. In fact we were quite ugly in our sin. But, we were accepted into the kingdom, and made clean, because Jesus died on the Cross in our place! Now, we are beautiful in Him, and we can honor God. He made us clean, and when God looks at us He sees beauty, because Jesus has made us clean. We are not beautiful! God has changed us.

Unbelievers are not honoring the Lord. They are not save either. Are you an unbeliever? If so, then why not come to Christ? He will change you if you come to Him. So, come to the Lord. If you come to Jesus, then He will make you beautiful, and He will love you, and give you strength (Philippians 4:13). So, if you want to be made new, then come to Jesus, and He will change You.

Believers should spread the Good news with other. We should give them the Gospel, instead of being Gospel hogs. We can honor God by giving others Christ. Let’s help them to see that Christ died for all (1 John 2:2). Let’s give unbelievers the Good-news, and maybe God will work in them, and help them to come to Him.

Believers should also praise God! We can honor God by praising Him! We can give thanks for all that He has done for us (given His own son for us, given us the Holy-Spirit, etc.). Let’s praise God! Let’s give thanks, and love Him for He has first loved us (1 John 4:19). Thank You, Lord! Praise God!

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your own son for me. Thank You for saving me, and blessing me so much. Thank You for making me beautiful in You. Thank You for washing me clean. Please help me to love You more. Please help me to give thanks, and praise You. Please help me not to be proud. Please help me to spread the Good-news of the Gospel to others. Thank You for all that You  have done for me. Please help me to grow in You more. Please help me to be more like You. Please strengthen me in You, and please strengthen other believers in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
