Mirror Reflections

James 1:23-24 If any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. Do you like to look in the mirror? I really don’t, but more often than not every time I pass a mirror, I tend to look into it. The reason being, not because I love to look at myself, but more of a self-conscience act of making sure my hair is still in place, no food in my teeth, clothes straightened, ect.. I rarely see people look into a mirror without fixing something. Most people look in the mirror daily. When they get out of bed, the first thing they do is look in the mirror and start fixing themselves. We as Christians, should be just as self-conscience about our spiritual being as we are about our physical being. What if we were so spiritually self-conscience, that every day before we left our house, just like we look into the mirror for our physical being, we looked into God’s word for our spiritual being and spent time on our knees asking God what it is that we need to change to be more like him. I don’t know many that would jump right out of bed and walk out their door without fixing themselves up, even if just a little bit like splashing water on their face and combing their hair. Why is that? The reason is most people want to be presentable when they walk out in public. Shouldn’t we as Christians want to have a “Christ-Like” presentation when we walk out into public each day? David prayed, search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me. This would be a good prayer to start anyone’s day off with, however; don’t just say the words, but actually take time to stop and listen to God. This might include thinking about conversations you have had, the way you treated the slow cashier at Wal-Mart, what you looked at on the internet, the path you let your mind dwell on. When things like these come to your mind in meditation with the Lord, that is the Lord showing you things that you need to fix. When you are reading the word of God and something pricks your heart, that is God speaking to you through His word, showing you something that needs to be fixed. Lord, Help us not walk away and forget about the things in our spiritual lives that need to be fixed. Help us take care of those things where we can start each and every day with a “Christ-like” presentation and be a mirror reflection of you. Amen
