In the Eyes of THE Beholder (Revisited Message)

“Your beauty should not consist of outward things like elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold ornaments or fine clothes.  Instead, it should consist of what is inside the heart with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very valuable in God’s eyes. “

 (1 Peter 3:3-4)

Praise God for HIS beauty and truth!  When we put our hope in God our hearts are freed up to be beautiful! When our hearts are free to love, our image is absolutely radiant.   I do not take Peter’s words as a prohibition toward outward beauty practices.  However, our primary effort should not rest with trying to be pleasing primarily based on our outward appearance.  You may be thinking this is hardly worth mentioning but search your heart and determine if it is true.

Transform me as I read Your Word & spend time in Your presence. Make me Your beautiful, spotless Bride…. In Yeshua’s name I ask,
