The Beauty Of The Church

You are all fair, my love,
And there is no spot in you.
(Song of Solomon 4:7)

The Lord's description of His Church is wonderful: You are all fair, my love.
The Church is pure.
She is washed in Christ's sin-atoning blood.
She is clothed in Christ's meritorious righteousness.
In her, the Lord sees holiness, glory, and perfection.
The Church is lovely.
Her deformities of sin are removed.
A meritorious righteousness is given to her.
Actual beauty is conferred upon her.
The Church is superlatively beautiful.
"O Fairest among women." (Song of Solomon 1:8)
Her real worth and excellence cannot be rivaled by all the nobility and royalty of the world. 
The Church is beautiful in the eyes of the Lord.
