I enjoy a bit of amateur photography and am especially captivated by reflections. It reminds me that we are meant to reflect God's character and love in our lives. A reflection is a likeness of the real thing. The full verse of 2 Corinthians 3:18 says, As all of us reflect the Lord’s glory with faces that are not covered with veils, we are being changed into his image with ever-increasing glory. This comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. We are meant to reflect God's character, his love, patience, kindness, peace, self-control, gentleness, holiness, generosity, glory etc. Does your life reflect popular culture or God? The good news is that we don't have to do this on our own. The Holy Spirit, who lives in those who believe, helps us.
Challenge: What area of your life needs remodelling to reflect God's character and not the world's? Next time you see a reflection remember that you were designed to reflect God's glory.
