Mirror Mirror

on February 6, 2012

In this day and age of cosmetic surgury and airbrushed perfection it is not hard to be displeased with what you see when you look in the mirror.  What I’m learning is that it isn’t what you see in the mirror, but what others see exuding from your heart that really makes you beautiful.  Yeah, we’ve all heard beauty comes from within, but stop and think about that as a Christian.  You have the very Spirit of God residing inside of you.  You have the ability to allow that spirit to exude from your lips and your life in all your actions.  Don’t think for a second people won’t see the difference.  I dare you, today, put on the Holy Spirit as your “make up”.  Let Him be the beauty people see when they look at you.

So, what does that look like? Well it looks like yielding to God’s will.  Really practice the fruit of the spirit today…love, kindness, gentleness, joy, peace, forbearance, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control.  Take a hard look at each of these virtues and really attempt to live them out.  Remember, love is the one command that covers all the rest so if it makes it easier…love today.  Love even those who are difficult to love.  Love so that when others see your love, they question, how and why you can be so loving…then tell them, Jesus loved you first.  Put on the Spirit today and wear it like those fancy red stilettoes or those fresh new nikey’s.  I dare you.

Father in Heaven, you are our stronghold, your steadfast love carries us through every trial and circumstance.  Father we praise you for you are mighty, loving and just.  Your mercy and grace cover us and make us righteous in your sight.  Lord continue to increase our holiness as we increase our faithfulness by abiding in you.  May your way be our gps.  May your glory be our radience, like Moses when he came down from the mountain after basking in your pressence.  We pray God that we would look different, not like super models, but like the Supreme model, our Maker.  Not in our strength, but in yours as we obey your laws and worship you.  All glory, honor and praise to you.  Amen
