GRACE AND BEAUTY
If something or someone is graceful, we see beauty. Sometimes we see elegance when we see grace. Sometimes we see calmness and things just seem to flow at an even keel. When we receive God’s grace, we are growing more beautiful on the inside. He is changing us to be a more loving, kind, generous, thoughtful and caring person. When we accept God’s gift of salvation through His grace, others will begin to see His beauty in us by our changed attitudes and actions.
1 Peter 3:4 “You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, You are awesome. Your grace and beauty is beyond our comprehension. We are so thankful You allow us to experience Your grace and beauty. We are so honored You have chosen us to know the feeling of being full of grace. We are ready for a change in our lives beyond our imagination where You help us to be even more loving, more kind, more generous, more thoughtful and more caring so we can share Your word and what You have done for us with others. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we see beauty, we see God’s grace.
The beauty on the inside of someone is far greater than the beauty on the outside.
Grace and beauty are both gifts from God.
When we allow God’s grace and beauty to fill us, others will see Jesus in us.
The beauty of God shines for all to see in those who truly believe and honor Him.
Psalms 50:2 “From Mount Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines in glorious radiance.” (NLT)
