Our beautiful God

  “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.” (Psalm 27:4, ESV)

How often do you think of God as beautiful?

We gravitate to certain aspects of him: his love, his might, his holiness, his grace and many others, no doubt.

But our God is also beautiful. His light makes a sunset appear like a flickering candle. His voice makes Mozart's arias fall flat in adoration. His Word leaves Shakespeare's sonnets speechless.

Our Lord could have been hideous and demanded our worship. Instead, he is beautiful and beckons us to join his family and take on the family resemblance.

One day that beauty will be ours to behold. One day we will lose ourselves in countless ages gazing on a beauty without compare.

For something beautiful today.

Moreover, I possess none of the externally obvious signs that would indicate that I deserve to be rocking out like it's nobody's business (e.g. I don't care what you think musician outfit, “cool” ethnicity, etc.).

At the stop light, if I pull up in between the two cars in the next lane over, neither of them can really tell what I'm doing. Rock on my friend. If I can't hit one of those sweet spots between cars, I might just do every other line ...wishin they was dancin a jig... ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cu-ba ... They might think they saw something, do a double take, but loo
