The Mirror

When a person stands before a mirror, he sees three things–the mirror, himself, and other things which are in the room. When I sincerely look by faith into the scriptures, I see many things, but primarily three things.

(1) I see the LORD JESUS CHRIST, for He verily is the WORD OF GOD. It is of Him, from Him, and to His glory that it is written. “To Him give all the prophets witness” (Acts 10:43).

(2) I see MYSELF as I truly am, for the word reveals the true nature and need of this son of Adam. “Lord, be merciful to me, the sinner! Let Thy blood atone for me on the mercy-seat.”

(2) I see OTHER PEOPLE and my RELATIONSHIP and my RESPONSIBILITY to them!

The image of myself reflected in a mirror is larger than others in the room, but NOT SO WITH THE SCRIPTURES.

“And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant. Even as the Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
(Matthew 20:27-28)

Paul rebuked those at Ephesus who “walked in the vanity of their own minds and desires,” (Ephesians 4:17) and said to them, “Ye have not so learned Christ” (Ephesians 4:20).

The person who is often in the word of Christ is often in prayer, in concern, and in the care and concerns of others!
