God’s definition of what is beautiful is so far from what we believe beauty to be.
“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace,Who bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:15
There are definitive actions that accompany beautiful people in the sight of God. These actions speak volumes because everyone sees the fruit of their harvest.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise. Prov 11:30
Beautiful people of God are wise BECAUSE they win souls…..selah.
They don’t know one another yet they have much in common and produce the same fruit that God’s word speaks about.
They are beautiful people who spend precious time reaching out to the lost locally and globally. Their conversations are NEVER about self. They are so grateful and satisfied with God’s daily provision.
Each of them speak the oracles of God’s word creating a thirst within me for His beauty to be evident in my life. Their example has fueled a greater fire for James 1:27 in my heart.
I know God has these beautiful people in my life for a reason and that reason is to see their example and to imitate it. And God’s word is the foundation of their example. They simply live His word at all levels.
Many of us are tired of “church going religious people” who do nothing beyond self. They spend time keeping others distracted and drained.
God has given us all a mandate throughout His word and if we simply obeyed it, we would all be on one accord, with our flaws and all, yet growing in His grace.
Isaiah 52:7 says it all…..
“How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
I see many believers this time of year getting excited about the state fair, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and preparing to glorify gluttony, yet they are DEAD when it comes to what matters to God the Father. They have no knowledge of the Biblical Feasts and do nothing to honor the feasts.
Matthew 9:37-38 says
Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. “Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.
We need to pray and act! We must fight hard for the beautiful. The selfishness and carnality of this world is in the church and we first must recognize it, then destroy it with TRUTH.
Our actions must proceed our mouths. In other words, only speak if our actions clearly protray what GOD ALMIGHTY considers beautiful.
1. Pray daily for opportunity to communicate the Good News to the lost
2. Locate a stranger or two daily and be God’s light and tell him/her about Jesus
3. NEVER go to church with an empty vehicle; GO and pick up NEW souls to ride with you; disciple them
4. Make your presence known throughout your entire neighborhood and community as God’s Ambassador
5. If you disagree with God’s word on what is wise and beautiful, then disagree without discouraging others. Remain selfish, disobedient and quiet.
