Reflection of Jesus

As water reflects a face,
so a man's heart reflects the man.
Proverbs 27:19

"Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are - face to face! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him."  2 Corinthians 3:16&18 MSG

When I took this photo, I immediately wondered if I reflect Jesus.  Our christian walk is all about becoming more like Jesus.  Hour by hour and day by day, do I get closer to showing a reflection of Jesus instead of myself?  Do I do what I need to each and every day to become "brighter and more beautiful"?  There are no rest stops or finish lines for a christian walk.  Have you noticed that if you take a rest, you lose your brightness?  The light begins to fade as the darkness seeps in and envelopes.

I pray today as I pass a mirror, that the reflection staring back at me is not my own, but Jesus!

This is so inspirational and a great reminder that we aren't made to serve ourselves, but to serve Him!

Amen! And great picture!! I just shared with my ladies Bible Study group last night, that I want my life story to be more about God at work in my life and less about me!

Thanks for sharing this awesome verse!!!

I'm here from iFellowship - only a day late! I love making my way through the entire list - even if it takes me a couple of days! LOL!

Enjoy your Thursday!

Beautiful post and picture, Cheri!

I know when I regularly miss my time with God, darkness does indeed seep in-often times unnoticed and in-sinuous until the damage is done!

Have a blessed weekend!
