Our text today is a popular verse of the scripture but one with utmost importance to our study this month. What we are told here is what is expected from us as Christians: we are to be mirrors that brightly reflect God’s glory. The Webster Dictionary defines a mirror as “something that gives a true representation.” Another dictionary defines a mirror as “something regarded as accurately representing something else.”
If you can remember elementary physics, a mirror image MUST represent the object in focus fully and in all ways. Therefore, we can categorically say that a Christian is called to mirror God on the earth. This goes beyond the principles and rules of religion as many believe and goes right into how you live your life, the words you say, how you act, dress, think and even walk. You were called to reflect God in every way humanly possible.
This seems like an insurmountable task, right? Well, that’s true. Trying to be like God all by yourself is like a man trying to drain an ocean with a sieve. But in the latter part of 2 Corinthians 3:18, the Bible says, “…are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” This means that if we follow God’s guidance correctly, we would be changed into that image – God’s glory.
I find it interesting that that’s what God meant when He said, “Let us make man in our image (Gen. 1:26).” He was referring to His glory and not to skin colour. God made us to reflect His glory to the world and to do that, we must conform ourselves to that image in every aspect of our lives.
PRAYER: I commit today to be a mirror that brightly reflects the glory of God in every aspect of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
