Morning by Morning, Monday 11-15-10 ¯ ¯The Beauty of Holiness!¯
Good morning, Lord Jesus. All I am and all I have, I entrust to You today. ¯
¯Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth¯. For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth¯ (Psalm 96:9-13, NKJV).
O Lord, my God, You are beautiful in the holiness of Your nature¯pure and holy, untainted and undefiled, radiant in the beauty and majesty of Your glory and splendor. And as we worship You, You are changing us into Your image: ¯But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord¯ (2 Corinthians 3:18, NJKV).
One day You¯re coming in glory to judge the earth. One day You¯re coming in glory to embrace Your bride. And every day before that day, You come in glory to judge our hearts, to cleanse our souls, to fill us with Your Spirit, and conform us to Your nature (Romans 5:5). The Father has sent His Holy Spirit to prepare a Holy bride for the coming of His Son (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24). And as we ¯worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,¯ You are fulfilling Your Word and revealing Your heart for Your people: ¯Let us rejoice and exult and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready¯ (Revelation 19:7).
Every day, as Your Holy Spirit prepares the way of the Lord in our hearts and in all the earth for the coming of the day of the Lord, establish Your righteousness and Your truth in our hearts and lives. Bring all things into the right order of Your righteousness with You, with one another, and within ourselves. Shine forth the light of Your truth within us and among us. Let us love You and one another, in the beauty of holiness, ¯just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, in order to make her holy by cleansing her with the washing of water by the word, so as to present the church to Himself in splendor, without a spot or wrinkle or anything of the kind¯yes, so that she may be holy and without blemish¯ (Ephesians 5:25-27).
You are a beautiful God. And You deserve a beautiful bride. So keep bringing us to the place by Your mercy and grace that we can come worship You in the beauty of holiness. In Jesus¯ name I pray, Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
