TOPIC: GOD DESERVES A “BEAUTIFUL HOUSE”

OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA 8th FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY
Jonathan Edwards was an American revivalist preacher, philosopher and congregationalist protestant theologian. He wrote, “For as God is infinitely the greatest Being, so He is allowed to be infinitely the most beautiful and excellent: and all the beauty to be found throughout the whole creation is but the reflection of the diffused beams of that Being who hath an infinite fullness of brightness and glory.
God… is the foundation and fountain of all beings and all beauty”. Our God delights in everything that is beautiful. He deserves the best. As of March 4, 2020, Buckingham Palace, London was said to be worth $1.55 billion, although it is unlikely to come on the market anytime soon. The palatial residence of Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is generally agreed to be the world’s most valuable residence.
If men could commit such huge resources to build houses for themselves, how much more the house of God! King Solomon realised the need to make this worthy investment by giving the best to the Source of wealth, through whom all blessings flow. God delights in things that portray His beauty.
Solomon realised that God was the Source of his wealth; as a result, he spared nothing – material or human resources – in showing gratitude to the Lord. It is amazing nowadays that some believers do not take delight in building a befitting house for God.
They are also not willing to participate in decorating existing ones.Yet, they make their own houses and apartments very comfortable while completely neglecting the house of God. The Lord is in search of people today who would take up the responsibility to make His house habitable. We must give God the honour due Him. This will always gladden the heart of the Almighty.
Thought For Today: Don’t give God what would cost you nothing.
Bible In One Year: MATTHEW 24-25
