Lord of All Beauty

They shall see the glory of the Lord; and the excellency of our God. (Isaiah 35:2)

Think with me about beauty—and about this matchless One who is the Lord of all beauty, our Savior!

God has surely deposited something within our human beings that is capable of understanding and appreciating beauty—the love of harmonious forms, appreciation of colors and beautiful sounds.

Brother, these are only the external counterparts of a deeper and more enduring beauty—that
which we call moral beauty. It has been the uniqueness and the perfection of Christ’s moral
beauty that have charmed even those who claimed to be His enemies throughout the centuries of
history.

We do not have any record of Hitler saying anything against the moral perfection of Jesus. One
of the great philosophers, Nietzsche, objected to Paul’s theology of justification by faith, but he
was strangely moved within himself by the perfection of moral beauty found in the life and
character of Jesus, the Christ.

We should thank God for the promise of heaven being the place of supreme beauty—and the
One who is all-beautiful is there!
