“On the glorious splendor of Your majesty, and on Your wondrous works, will I meditate” (Psalm 145:5).
“One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold/gaze at/see the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire/seek Him in His temple” (Psalm 27:4, various translations).
Some translations, in place of beauty, say “splendor, delightfulness, sweetness, perfections, graciousness, goodness.” For Lord, some translations are “Lord Jehovah, Jehovah, Yahweh.”
The Lord Jesus is indeed the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe. His presence is . . . the glory of the Lord.
When we go deeper with Him in the power of the Holy Spirit, and we experience His presence and glory, He is the only One we will want.
God has given Jesus to mankind eternally in three ways:
1. God gave His Son as a man, who died for the world.
2. Since Jesus died, God has given Jesus to the world through the Holy Spirit.
3. He will give Jesus to the saints through the Holy Spirit, forever (John 14:16).
