I am a man who will reflect God to the world as a light.

"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit." -2 Corinthians 3:18

The change that this world so desperately needs starts with us. We need to start living in the Light so we can be a mirror and reflect the Light to others. It is not about us manufacturing light or goodness, apart from God we can do neither, but as we abide in God, we will constantly and continually transform in to the same image of Jesus our Lord.

He is our Lord, He is our Master, we must follow Him and fix our eyes on Him and in doing so, with our focus on Him, we will automatically become a better and better mirror of Him to the world. And that is precisely we need to do. That is precisely what I need to do, not by my own strength, but by His in me.

The largest area where I believe my flesh lacks is love. Love is one of the largest pieces of the puzzle that I believe defines and shows the light that we are to reflect.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." -1 Corinthians 13:4-7

It may be the next most quoted verses outside of John 3:16, but lets stop and compare it to ourselves, and stop just listening to it or just reading it. Let's pray to live a life of love that will shine Christ's light so bright that our life will be completely unexplainable outside of the Holy Spirit.

Let's pray:
Holy Spirit transform me continually and constantly into the perfect image of Jesus as mirror. Let Your love flow through me to others, let the world see You in my life. Help me be patient, kind, and not envious. Destroy in me boastfulness and pride.. Help me to honor others and be selfless,  never getting angry easily or focus on others faults. Help me rejoice in truth. Help me protect those who need it. Help me trust others in authenticity, be joyful in hope, and persevere in whatever this world throws at me. You created me in Your image and I want to a perfect mirror of of it.
