1 Kings 6:14-18: God of beauty


Phillip Ryken in his commentary on this portion points out that you can know a person by going through their house.  You can tell if they are rich, attracted to art, conservative, etc.  God’s house, the temple, tells us about God.  We have been looking at the interior parts of the temple, and now it is time to turn our attention to the interior.  The interior aspects of the temple will direct our attention to three things about God, He is a God beauty, glory and holiness.  Today we want to explore how God is a God of beauty thinking on the purpose of beauty, what clogs our ability to see it, and the various projects of beauty God has on the go.
