Our Gorgeous God

Isaiah 53:2 speaks of Jesus not as an attractive, handsome man but as having "no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him." Jesus was not the poster child for young, single Hebrew men. He wasn't a fashion model or a guy that all the ladies goggled over. That just isn't important. People flocked to him because he was God. He was wise, kind, and compassionate. And when you think about it...

God is beautiful. You can see it in a solid film score (think Braveheart, Lord of the Rings, or the newest Batman movies), the clouds building up on the horizon, the green rolling hills that surround this campus after one day of rain, smiles on the faces of junior highers as they skate around downtown. In a God-sent conversation, a series of hugs and kisses on the cheek from a Grandparent, a flour covered kitchen, a hill speckled with chocolate and coal colored cows, in a crisp day, in the turning in of an essay or the finishing of a final. Take the time to look for it this week. God's beauty is everywhere!

Thank you camera phone, you did your best to capture the sky's beauty. God outdid you by a long shot though.

It was a breathtaking drive... this doesn't come close.
