Spiritual Beauty!

(J. R. Miller, "Counsel and Help" 1907)

yfcrmz2i"But now you must also put away all the following: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and filthy language." Colossians 3:8 All the precepts of the Bible are aimed towards the fashioning of spiritual beauty in every redeemed life.

We are to put away . . .

  • all that is sinful,
  • all that is marring,
  • every blot and blemish,
  • every unholy desire, feeling, and affection,
  • everything that would defile.

And we are to put on whatever is lovely and Christ-like.

The one great work of Christ in Christian lives–is the fashioning of holiness in them. We are to grow away from our deformities, our faults and infirmities, our poor dwarfed, stunted life–and into spiritual beauty! The mark set before us is the likeness of Christ, which, at last, we shall attain! "We shall be like Him, because we will see Him as He really is!" 1 John 3:2
