Example text

In the same way, most of us do not feel attractive when we stand before God. Wrong actions and attitudes run through our minds and all we see is the contrast between His holiness and our sin. So the idea of a beautiful God who makes us beautiful fundamentally changes how we interact with God and with other people. If He thinks we’re beautiful…well, then it doesn’t really matter if others agree or not! The King gazes upon us and likes what He sees! The King will greatly desire your beauty; because He is your Lord, worship Him.

Jesus’ name is called “Wonderful” because He alone can fill the hearts of His people with wonder. ” For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…His name will be called Wonderful… (Isaiah 9:6) The pleasures of God and the comprehension of His majesty go far beyond our ability to imagine. Even here on Earth we regularly see things we couldn’t have dreamed would be so beautiful. It’s not uncommon to hear people, who have heard about it for decades, standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon, THE LONGING FOR FASCINATION 45 say, “I had no idea…” If an earthly canyon, a creation of God, can inspire such awe, then how can we even begin to imagine the beauty of that Creator Himself?

Even those who are attractive often claim and believe that no one thinks they are. Most fathers have had at least a few of those conversations through the bathroom door… “Daddy, I can’t go to school today. ” While that child may be very attractive, at some level they feel their every flaw is magnified a hundred times. In the same way, most of us do not feel attractive when we stand before God. Wrong actions and attitudes run through our minds and all we see is the contrast between His holiness and our sin.
