CHRIST BEAUTIFIES THE SOUL
The Bible encourages women to adorn a “gentle” and “quiet” spirit. The external attributes of a woman will diminish with age (2Cor.4:16), but a beautiful soul, adorned with Christ, will last forever.
God is the only one who can see into the human heart. He is the best judge and His judgement is to be valued. He looks into the inner man and sees what can’t be seen. He sees what is not obvious to human eyes.
God sees a woman with a “gentle” and “quiet” spirit as “precious” in His sight (1Peter 3:4). A woman with a heart in total submission to God, is more of an influence to her husband, than the show of her outward appearance.
The excellency of grace, a helper, a guide, gentle, compassionate, merciful, forgiving, long-suffering, wise… these are just some of the words used to describe the Holy Spirit. It is not a coincidence that these words can also be used to describe the nature of a woman. The Holy Spirit, is often personified as a woman in the Bible. Women are made in the perfect image of God and godly women reflect His character (Col.3:9,10).
The ornament of grace is like sunshine. It brightens the atmosphere, the world cannot function without it. If affects homes, it affects nations, it affects destinies.
Women who fear the Lord wear the most glorious ornaments. Their heart, their mind, their meek and gentle spirits, are extremely beautiful. They are so precious in the sight of God (1Peter3:4).
Happy Mother’s Day. Bless the nations with this post today. Share it.
