The Word Of God Is A Mirror

The Word Of God Is A
Mirror

2-Corinthians_3:18: But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord

2-Corinthians_3:18: But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only… (James 1:22).

To the new creation, the Word of God is a
mirror, and not a compilation of
commandments to be obeyed. The Christian
is a Word practitioner. This is something many are yet
to understand.

For example, when you read in Ephesians 5:3-4:
“But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness,
let it not be once named among you, as becometh
saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting,
which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks,”

it’s not a commandment. It’s not telling you what you
must not do. Rather, it’s showing you who you are; the
righteousness of God in Christ, with a sanctified heart,
mind, and tongue.

The Word of God reflects your true nature,
identity, origin, and heritage in Christ. The more you
look at the Word, the more you see yourself. God’s
Word is life; something to live out.

For example, when Jesus said, “A new
commandment I give unto you, That ye love one
another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one
another” (John 13:34), He was addressing men and
women of the senses; people who weren’t born again.

But being born again, and having received the Holy
Spirit, the Bible says, “…the love of God is shed abroad
in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us”
(Romans 5:5).

We’re not now commanded to love; we’re born
of love; we’re the offspring of love; love is our nature.
Thus, Romans 5:5 is a description of who you are. Once
you can accept it, you become it. That’s the principle!
When you read something in the New Testament that
sounds like, “Don’t do this or don’t do that,” it means
we’re those who don’t do such things! It’s a picture of
you.

The Word, particularly the Epistles, paint the
picture of the new creation. That’s how come as you’re
studying and meditating on the Scriptures, suddenly,
the Word of God comes alive to you! It then becomes
how you see yourself every day.

That’s the miracle of growth, because as you
discover who you are in the Word, you discover your
beauty, and your glory increases. It’s a life of
ever-increasing glory through the Word. Hallelujah.

CONFESSION
I’m the expression of the unseen Christ, the
brightness of His glory. As He is, so am I in this
world; and as I stay my mind on the picture of me
that I see in the Word, I’m transformed; I experience
ever-increasing glory. Hallelujah!
