2 Corinthians 3:18 AMP
And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.
Our sense of sight, it would seem, also came with a sense of humour. The only face you can’t quite see with your eyes is yours. It isn’t surprising then, that people have always found it fascinating to see their own reflection. Ancient people gazed upon the river to see what they looked like. Later on, there were polished stones and the obsidian rock which showed reflections. By the third century A.D., glass mirrors were made.
Mirrors used to be found only in the homes of very rich people, until a German chemist called Justus von Liebig figured out a better way to make mirrors in 1835. Liebig was the father of Organic Chemistry and also made significant contributions to Agriculture.
You can’t see yourself except you look into the mirror. You can’t know your spiritual self if you don’t look into the Word. The Word of God is a mirror. The Word makes you what it talks about. The more you look at the Word, the more you see what you really look like. If you aren’t getting the results you desire yet, keep your focus on the Word of grace and do what the Word says. The Word of God is a mirror.
CONFESSION: My life is mirroring the promises in God’s Word. I am victorious.
PRAYER: Help me reflect Your goodness to the world.
