A look at the mirror

The Mirror
Each time I stand to look at the mirror, I see a reflection of who I am and also make adjustments of who I want to see and how I want people to see me by changing anything I don't like as I behold myself. The mirror shows me my reflection. If I fail to look at the mirror, I will not be able to know exactly how I look before leaving my house and I might end up being embarrassed outside the comfort of my house because I failed to look at the mirror. With the mirror I make adjustments, with the mirror, I make myself look good. Wow!
So mirror is this important? Then we must all be grateful to the German chemist, Justus von Liebig who in 1835 developed a process for applying a thin layer of metallic silver to one side of a pane of clear glass. This is how mirror was invented. Do you know that the Word of God is also a mirror? And this mirror has long existed even before Justus von Liebig invented the mirror we are all glued to today. The Bible is a mirror which God invented Himself for His children to behold their reflections and make every necessary adjustment. There are some levels we will never get to until we see ourselves in the mirror of His Word. 

When we look at the word of God, through constant study, it daily reveals to us who will ought to be, we see a reflection of who God has ordained us to be. Most times we struggle because we don't take proper look at the mirror of His word, sometimes we are often in a hurry, sometimes we don't allow ourselves to see the scars on our faces as we go through the Word. If only we can always see a reflection of who God wants us to be when we look at His word, then we will become more like Him by transforming into the same image we behold in His word.

If the physical mirror helps you to adjust your appearance and look good, how much more do you think the Word of God can do to your spirit being? If you can't do without a physical mirror, how then can you survive without the mirror of His word? Isn't it obvious that God uses physical things to explain spiritual things to His children? Just as you will make a mess of yourself if you fail to look at your mirror before leaving your house so also will you make a mess of yourself without studying the Word. Use the physical mirror to understand the importance of the mirror of His word. Since you can't do without looking at the mirror a day, you also cannot live without looking at the mirror of His word. When you look at the mirror, you make corrections, so it is with God's Word, you must allow His Word to correct you. We need to look at it everyday. For therein lies our transformation, and that's the only way we don't conform to the world.
2 Corinthians 3:18 "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".

God is calling on every believer to behold His glory in His Word and constantly transfigure into the same image (his image) we behold, increasing from one level of glory to another. Beloved, you can only become what you believe and behold.
Failure to transform means conformity which only leads to death. 
Be transformed (Metamorphose)
