LOOK INTO GOD’S MIRROR
(You’re The Very Effulgence Of His Glory)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
1 John 4:17 “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
Jesus Christ is the effulgence of the Father’s glory, the express image of His Person (Hebrews 1:3). That’s exactly what He’s made us too, for as He is—the glory of the Father—so are we in this world (1 John 4:17). Jesus said, “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one” (John 17:22). This is extraordinary. If only you’d live with this consciousness every day!
2 Corinthians 3:18 explains it some more: “And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit” (AMPC). A mirror reflects whatever is set before it and the Word of God is a mirror. The image of you that it reflects is called “the glory of God.” What we read in John 17:22 is God holding up His mirror for you to see that you’re a partaker of His glory.
When Jesus walked the earth, He walked gloriously. He lived and manifested the glory of God. He walked on water, talked to the wind and the waves, unstopped deaf ears, opened blind eyes, healed lame legs, restored maimed limbs, and even raised the dead. We have the same ability within us to function likewise because the same Holy Spirit that was the power and essence of Jesus lives in us today. This has effectively removed you from the class of ordinary men; you’re an associate of the God-kind.
God chose you to be the one to show forth His praises and manifest His glory in the earth: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9 AMPC).

Dear Father, I thank you for your glory in my life. My life is the manifestation of your wisdom and grace; your righteousness is revealed and evident in me. You’ve made me a light in a dark world, and my light shines everywhere. I impact my world with your righteousness, wisdom, and love, today and always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
