If I ask you “What are the attributes of God?” I think that most of us would rattle off with these answers: “OMNIPOTENT”, “OMNISCIENT”, and “OMNIPRESENT”. Those would be the standard answers.
One attribute of God that is often missed is this: “God is BEAUTIFUL!”. This is a very important attribute because BEAUTY ATTRACTS! If we see that God is beautiful, we will be ATTRACTED to Him.
Unfortunately, only a REMNANT see and APPRECIATE His beauty.
This was something that the Psalmist saw and it RADICALLY CHANGED his life.

What drew me to Christ was His beauty. The beauty of His love, grace, kindness, glory and peace was what attracted me to Him. I continue to pursue Him for only He is able to satisfy my soul.
