“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” 2Corinthians 3:18
LIGHT FOR NOW: If you can see it, you can have it.
When you study the Word of God, you are actually looking into the mirror of God, and you see yourself. As you study and meditate, what you see is the glory of God, and that glory is actually your true reflection. This is because God’s Word mirrors you. It shows your identity, origin, potentials and ability in Christ Jesus. When we preach the Gospel and teach others the Word, we are holding God’s mirror to them so that they can see themselves in the Word, know who they are as well as their rights and abilities in Christ. The one who hitherto thought he was unworthy and undeserving of God’s love suddenly sees that he is so loved of God. The one who thought he was condemned suddenly discovers that Christ has paid the price for his salvation, and immediately begins to walk in that light. That is the power of God’s Word. It works through the mirror principle.
The Word does not only show you who you are, it also imparts to you the ability to live accordingly. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”. Notice carefully, the choice of words as inspired by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was made sin for you that you might be made the righteousness of God in Him. This means that you have become the very expression of His righteousness. You must see yourself that way, accept it and live accordingly. Keep studying and meditating on the Word of God, for the more you do so, the more His glory is increased and revealed in, and through you.
INSTRUCTION:Let God’s Word mirror you.
PRAYER:Lord, thank you for making me the expression of your righteousness, in Jesus Name. Amen.
QUOTE:Work on being and not on having.
