Mirror, Mirror

Mirrors…they can be a good thing, you know like when you have just lost a lot of weight or when you leave the salon.  They can also be very depressing, like when you are going through postpartum and nothing in your closet fits!

But what exactly is a mirror?  Webster says a mirror is an object that reflects.

Let’s ponder this, as Christian what are we to mirror or reflect?
Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

This leads me to believe that since we were created in the image of God, we are to reflect Him.  Now the question is HOW?  How do we reflect Christ?
Ephesians 1:17  says “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.”

To reflect Christ, we must know Christ.  To know Christ, we must spend time with Him in His Word.  Every time we read His word, we should ask God to reveal Himself to us and believe that He will.

The disciples made the knowledge of God a priority.  They spent time with Him.  The revelation of who God is will enable us to become mighty instruments in the hand of God.   
As we reflect Christ, God will be able to use us to reach others. 
Decide now to make the pursuit of God a passion.  Choose to know God and make Him known!
