2 Corinthians 3: 18: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.”- NKJV
Imagine a scenario, where you woke up to a world where the image seen on the mirror is unrecognizable. I believe such an incident would make a number of people uncomfortable. Since reflective surfaces enables us to gain a perspective of what we look like. And if this cannot be achieved, it would be reasonable to say that people would be disturbed.
For a long time, the mirror has come to be a necessary extra, of the things we utilize regularly. When we view our images on the mirror, it is easy to make necessary adjustments from what we’ve seen, so that we can look good and comfortable. However, this adjustments made can only be achieved if we have a clear image of ourselves.
As believers, our mirror is the word of God. With daily study, revelation truths are illuminated within our hearts by the Holy Spirit, which enables us to make the necessary adjustments in line with the truths revealed, which enables us become more like the wonderful image of the Father. However, when we stay away from the word, we begin to look malnourished and far from the image of the Father. Lack of fellowship: separates us, makes us look unrecognizable, and far from the image and glory of the Father.
This separation can be disturbing, because at such a point, all you see as an image is one that is vulnerable. You may try to mask this vulnerability through various theatrics, and for a while maybe deceive others, but what good is deceiving others, when all you need do is return with a repentant heart to the loving arms of the Father [Study the “The Father’s Love” for more details and “Who am I without the vine?”].
For you and me to become more like the glorious image of the Father, and by the Spirit grow in revelation truths, it is nonnegotiable that we study the word of God regularly and spend time in fellowship with the Father.
Enjoy a blessed day ahead.
