God who creates all beauty finds this type of woman to be particularly beautiful

Posted: June 22, 2016 in Behavior that shows holiness and consecration to Jesus

Many modern women spend an extraordinary amount of effort and money trying to make themselves more attractive with the use of “sex” appeal. Resources given as gifts from god such as time and money are used not for His kingdom, but for perfect hairdo’s and styling equipment, make-up and perfume, expensive jewelry and gems, mountains of clothes — some quite suggestive and not modest — and beauty and spa treatments, not to mention gym memberships to keep that body looking fine.

Except that God, who carefully crafts each woman before she is born, is completely satisfied with a woman’s outside beauty from birth. He values a woman’s inward beauty.  What kind of special gift can you willingly give to the Lord who already has everything? 1 Peter 3: 3-4 explains God’s heart toward women. “Don’t depend on things like fancy hairdos or gold jewelry or expensive clothes to make you look beautiful. Be beautiful in your heart by being gentle and quiet. This kind of beauty will last, and God considers it very special.”

What about the beauty of holiness and consecration as a bride of Christ? How much time, effort and money are you spending preparing yourself to become more like Christ as a wedding gift for your bridegroom, Jesus Christ? All else will be left behind and not have eternal value. Also read Proverbs 31 for another description of a beautiful woman after God’s own heart.
