Day 18 | Finding Reflections
We have a view of the ocean from most of the rooms of our home. A developer bought the two blocks next door and demolished the dwellings. For months, we had uninterrupted views from our bedroom. Eventually an even larger complex was constructed on that land and impeded most of our view.
The very next morning revealed something we had not experienced before. As the sun rose early over the ocean, it lit up the four story white wall next door. The reflection of sun rise shot straight into our bedroom. It was like someone had turned our building around to face the sun.
I lay there in my bed, marveling at the possibilities we Christians have to reflect the Son!
God said, let there be light in the darkness. God is light. In Him there is no darkness. Jesus is the exact representation of who God is. Christ in us, is the hope of glory. Jesus, the Son, dwells in us.
The more I spend time with Jesus the more I reflect His life, His attitude, His behaviour, His values. I reflect the Son. People should be able to look at me and see the Son Rise all over me!
What's more, I should be able to see the Son rising over you too. His reflections should be clearly seen in all we say and do.
TIME TO THINK:
Who are the people who best reflect Jesus to me?
What can I change to reflect Jesus more?
Jesus, You are the light of the world, and You want me to reflect Your light. It's obvious when I spend time with You. Thank you for Your light. Help me to be a greater reflection of who You are. Amen.
2 Corinthians 4:6-7 NLT
“For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.”
Colossians 1:27 NIV
“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
