God commanded Moses to have the Israelites sew ornamental garments for the high priest to wear during the time he served in the tabernacle.
These garments were designed to be visually beautiful and appealing because the garments represented the glory of God, which is God’s Beauty.
The priestly garments were designed to be beautiful because these garments were worn in the beautiful presence of God as the high priest performed his sacred duties.
So, the priestly garments were to be no ordinary garments; they were to be beautiful and glorious!
They were designed to distinguish the priest as one who is set apart for God’s service and one who is clothed in beauty for God’s service.
Today, the new life we receive in Christ through the indwelling Holy Spirit will transform us into beautiful people who live beautiful lives for the glory of our Beautiful God.
Yes, you have a beautiful life when you are clothed with God’s Beauty…
When you are filled with His Beautiful Presence…
When you are filled with His Holy Spirit!
And then, with your beautiful life you proclaim the Wonderful and Glorious Name of God and His Salvation!
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns! (Isaiah 52:7, NLT)
