Our computer is in our lounge room and where I sit I can see our rose bushes in our front garden bed. There is one bloom there at the moment that is beautiful.
As I’m sitting here looking at this rose I am wondering whether I am beautiful.
Now I’m not talking about whether I am beautiful to look at. I am talking about an inner beauty.
Do I reflect God in my life from the inside???
1 Peter 3:4 But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.
It isn’t our outward beauty that shows that the Holy Spirit is working in our lives, we can be glamorous and of great beauty but our hearts can be dead and full of self so that there is no room for the Holy Spirit to dwell.
I am not saying that outwardly beautiful people haven’t got a heart for God I am just saying that it is that which is in our hearts that reflects our true beauty. Are we a temple of the Holy Spirit?
1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.
Are we beautiful on the inside??? Are we precious in Gods sight?? I pray that we are, and that God moulds us in His image.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.
