The Kitchen Table
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John *testified about Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’” 16 For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace.
Beauty begets beauty. Glory creates glory! Jesus, the glory, or beauty of God, came to bring the glory or beauty of God into our lives. That happens by grace, God’s undeserved, unreserved love for us. Beauty begets beauty and Jesus showed us what true beauty looks life. Those ugly spots are just places where we need His grace. The grace of God reveals the glory of God. That’s what true love does. Don’t live ugly, you don’t have to.
