“Yes, He is altogether lovely! This is my Beloved, and this is my Friend!” – Song of Songs 5:16
Every Christian life is beautiful, so far as it fairly and truly represents Christ. Anything in a believer’s life which is not beautiful is not a just or adequate expression of our precious Lord Jesus. Holiness of character is simply the reproduction of the likeness of Christ in our life. Any feature that is not lovely is not truly Christlike, and misrepresents Christ. It is not the Christianity itself that is unlovely in any way, but the human interpretation of it in disposition and conduct.
“He who says he abides in Him, ought himself also to walk just as He walked.” – 1 John 2:6
