You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Isaiah 65:2 (ESV)
The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3: 17 (NIV)
Our Savior’s welcoming presence will
always be one of lavish love, delight, and
adoration towards those who are His truly
royal, redeemed blood-bought heirs. Royals
think on this when the cruelty of the world
and lukewarmness of cold, carnal, and cynical
Christians seems too much a burden to bear.
Won’t that be a glorious “faith becomes sight day”
when we see our Savior face to face? For in the
nail pierced hands of our Savior we are His crown
of beauty, His royal diadem. But until we see Him
face to face may we all remember this divine, Holy,
inerrant, glorious, triumphant, and life-giving
truth. We are His beloved, His masterpieces over
which he delightfully sings! Think upon this and
ceaselessly rejoice! For He indeed is our Redeemer,
Rescuer, Lord, Master, and faithful friend forever,
forever, forever, and forevermore! Amen and Amen!
