I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in my God; For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
Isaiah 61:10 (KJV)
But as it is, Christ has acquired a [priestly] ministry which is more excellent [than the old Levitical priestly ministry], for He is the Mediator (Arbiter) of a better covenant [uniting God and man], which has been enacted and rests on better promises.
Hebrews 8:6 (Amplified)
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
Matthew 13: 45-46 (KJV)
So grateful for the Christ-created majestic beauty found in
glorious beauty-laden gemstones. And yet we, His blood-bought
royal, redeemed heirs, are the jewel-encrusted gemstones that our
Triune God acclaims, adores, adorns, and for whom Jesus Christ atoned!
So grateful for the Christ-created majestic beauty found in glorious
beauty-laden gemstones found in the priestly ephod redeeming beauty
of our Lord and glorious Savior, Jesus Christ! For the truly redeemed all
beauty points us to the costly royal gift of the priceless pearl of great price!
