One Thing

April 13, 2015

Jesus my Savior
He is altogether lovely -Song 5:16
The fairest of ten thousand to my soul -Song 5:10
By His blood I’m cleansed white as snow
Made whole -Isa1:18;Ps51:7
The One above all others most precious to me
Jesus Christ my Lord
His love experienced and revealed
More delightful than wine
Better than life -Song 1:2-4;Ps63:2-3
The fairest of ten thousand
Seek His face
Taste and see -Ps34:8
Life itself
He is altogether lovely to behold.

Psalm 27:4 AMP
4 One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple.

From NetBible Ps 27:4

  • behold[02372] = to perceive, experience, contemplate(with pleasure), prophesy
  • beauty[05278] = kindness, pleasantness, delightfulness, favor

.
Psalm 11:7 AMP
7 For the Lord is [rigidly] righteous, He loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold[02372] His face, or He beholds the upright.

Beholding the Lord’s beauty is both individual and corporate
Once you’ve tasted and seen
You can’t help but praise Him and
Want others to taste and see too!

Psalm 63:2-3 AMP
2 So I have looked upon[02372] You in the sanctuary[06944] to see[07200] Your power and Your glory. 3 Because {experiencing}Your loving-kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.

The beauty of holiness –2Chr 20:21;Ps 29:1-2;96:9-10
This is what is tasted and seen
Reflected
Drawing others to taste and see and
Reflect the beauty of holiness too!

3 Let the peoples praise You [turn away from their idols] and give thanks to You, O God; let all the peoples praise and give thanks to You.

15 Make us glad in proportion to the days in which You have afflicted us and to the years in which we have suffered evil. 16 Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children. 17 And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands—yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.
