Reflection


So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. 
—2 Corinthians 3:18 (NLT)

Whose reflection do you see in your mirror?  Do you see who you were before the veil into His presence was removed?  Perhaps you still wear the mask you wore before you believed? You don't need to hide from Jesus. He knows you intimately. He is in your spirit whether you “feel” Him or not in your mind. Until the person the grace of Jesus reveals in the mirror becomes the person you see, you will not see your reflection as He sees you. And how does He see you? He sees you as you really are—righteous because by faith you asked Him into your heart. His love for you on the cross changed everything.

Until you understand this truth, you will not see yourself as He sees you. When you put on your new nature He gave you at Calvary—when you are renewed in your mind—when you allow Him to open the eyes of your understanding, you begin to see yourself as sees you. Your vision clears. The old veil that has covered your understanding is removed, and you have spiritual clarity. You understand grace doesn’t judge your performance. It doesn’t see the faults you see in the mirror. Grace sees the finished work in you that was finished on the cross. 

It is so frustrating trying to change the way you think about yourself. It is so much easier allowing the Holy Spirit to do the work. “By his divine power,” Peter wrote, “God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3, NLT). The Lord—who is the Spirit—has imparted EVERYTHING you need to live the godly life that you RECEIVED when you were born-again by His Spirit! We believe by faith that His divine power will make a difference when we choose to change. 

That veil has hidden His promise from you. The reflection of His glorious image in the mirror will inspire you so much more than your own!

P.S.  Your own image condemns you. His image is who you really are.Your own image condemns you. His image is who you really are.
