An even higher honor is to be called “The Beautiful Christian.” Above all others, believers should be the truly “beautiful people.” We are to be marked by the qualities of gentleness, compassion, love, tenderheartedness, and courtesy (1 Pet. 3:4,8). We are to be “beautiful” because we return blessing for evil (v.9), we seek peace (v.11), and we are willing to “suffer for righteousness’ sake” (v.14).
When others see you, do they see a reflection of Christ’s love in you? Because of your faithfulness, could you be called a “beautiful Christian”?
