MIRROR FOR THE SOUL
Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
The purpose of the Gospel is that we increasingly reflect the moral image of God so that we may be used for His work in the world.
God's Word points us in the right direction, and as we live according to His Word, God continues to guide our way.
It is when we come humbly to God with all the imperfection of our soul that we find true and lasting resolve to the deficiencies we try so hard to cover up. In Ephesians 5:26, Paul speaks of Washing with Water through the Word. This is the divine work of God that takes place with the application of Scripture into our lives. We see ourselves in the light of Christ and become aware of our need for the transforming work of God in turning a fault-ridden reflection into an ever-increasing reflection of Christ.
Lord Jesus, we do not want to resist Your rebuke and correction, however uncomfortable. Grant us the humility to hear Your voice and respond to.Your convictions. Thank You, God. Amen
