ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL 

Thou art all fair, my love.
Song of Solomon 4:7
As they say, ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’. Everyone has their own version of beauty. Some like a beautiful mountain view, for others nothing beats a majestic seascape. Some folks have an eye for a classic automobile or a motorcycle. Still others the perfect golf shot or a giant buck. The Lord has an eye for beauty. For Him it is all about perfection. The Father sees perfection only in His Son Jesus. Nothing imperfect would ever pass His test for beauty. That’s where grace and redemption come in. By faith in the blood of Jesus the Father credits the righteousness or beauty of Christ to me. I have put on the garments of righteousness; I have put on Christ by faith in His blood. Now I am like Christ in the eyes of the Father. I am altogether lovely. From His perspective, there is no blemish in me. Here is how Charles Spurgeon sees this beautiful truth.
“The Lord’s admiration of his Church is very wonderful, and his description of her beauty is very glowing. She is not merely fair, but all fair. He views her in himself, washed in his sin-atoning blood and clothed in his meritorious righteousness, and he considers her to be full of comeliness and beauty. No wonder that such is the case, since it is but his own perfect excellency that he admires; for the holiness, glory, and perfection of his Church are his own glorious garments on the back of his own well-beloved spouse. She is not simply pure, or well-proportioned; she is positively lovely and fair! She has actual merit! Her deformities of sin are removed; but more, she has through her Lord obtained a meritorious righteousness by which an actual beauty is conferred upon her. Believers have a positive righteousness given to them when they become accepted in the beloved ( Ephesians 1:6 ).”
This is an amazing, hard to believe, truth. If any thing was ever too good to be true this would be it; but it is true. He loves me with an everlasting love. He has crowned me with His lovingkindness. All His treasures are set aside for me. As David said, I am the apple of His eye. He will not withhold any of His benefits from His bride. So reflect on the beauty of Jesus Christ today. Then, by faith, consider those attributes to be yours. This is the way the Father views you, ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.
