Just the Way You Are

Jesus is obsessed with the Church.

We know this or should know this deeply. But all to often do we realize just how much? I don’t think we ever do. When He looks at His bride, His eyes are for her alone. He sees her as holy and completely perfect in His eyes. He sees absolutely nothing wrong with the Church. And we, as Christ followers, are a part of the Church. What a blessed opportunity.

Oh, her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they’re not shinin’
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying
She’s so beautiful
And I tell her everyday

I know, I know
When I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so
Sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But everytime she asks me “Do I look okay? ”
I say

We are completely perfect and beautiful in every way. Blameless and perfect in His sight. Is it even possible to explain just how beautiful we are to Him?

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

You see, when the Church is truly functioning, she is the most beautiful thing in the world. She reflects the glory of her bridegroom. She is and will be the most beautiful thing the world has seen. When we love Him deeply, we come to fall in love with the Church, we begin to see her as a beautiful being that the whole universe will become enchanted with…second only to God Himself.
