When, Lord, You look upon us, You do not see our sin. You see our Saviour,

Song of Solomon 6:1-7:9
"You are beautiful ... How beautiful you are" (Song of Solomon 6:4; 7:6). We wonder, Lord, how You can possibly see any beauty in us? We are sinners - "We have all strayed like sheep. Each one of us has turned to his own way." We thank You, Lord, that Christ died for sinners: "the Lord laid all our sins on Him" (Isaiah 53:6). When You look upon us, You do not see our sin. You see our Saviour, Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. When You look at us, this is what You see: "The blood of Jesus, Your Son, cleanses us from all sin" (1 John 1:7). This, Lord, is the beauty You see - the beauty of Jesus, our Saviour.
