As I stated in a previous blog, I am reading Christian Beliefs: 20 Basics every Christian Should know by Wayne and Elliot Grudem. Here of are some of main points of Chapter 2 titled “What is God Like.”
God is Beautiful
David tells us that his single great longing in life is to dwell in God’s house for his entire life, and one reason he gives is the beauty of the Lord.
- One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek : That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple. (Psalm 27:4)
God is the sum of all desirable qualities, and possesses every quality that is desirable. All our longings and desires will only ever be fulfilled in God, the One who is truly beautiful.
