The Beauty of Jesus

By Charlie Davis

     “Let the beauty of Jesus Be Seen” is the title of a very beautiful song.:  “Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me, All His wonderful passion and purity;  May His spirit divine all my being refine, Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.”
     Holiness really amounts to the beauty of Jesus in our lives.  “True holiness does not consist merely of believing and feeling, but of doing and hearing, and practical exhibition of active and passive grace.  Our tongues, our tempers, our natural passions and inclinations—our conduct as parents and children, masters and servants, husbands and wives, rulers and subjects—our dress, our employment of time, our behavior in business, our demeanor in sickness and health, in riches and in poverty—all these are matters which are fully treated by inspired writers.”
     “When your burden is heavy and hard to bear/; When your neighbors refuse all your load to share; When you’re feeling so blue; Don’t know just what to do, Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you.”
