The Two-Fold Day


"And we, who with unveiled faces reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit" (2 Cor. 3:18).

What is it that we want to see when we really look at ourselves? David (Ps.17:14&15), wanted to see God in himself. He wanted to see a person of goodness, purity, holiness, and virtue. He wanted to be more like the God he claimed to serve.

His prayer gives a simple solution to a common problem. We also can begin each day with the same two-fold purpose. First, to look for God! As we do this we will get a better handle on discerning good and evil. We can get closer to God through our constant communication. As we communicate more with Him, He can become our measuring stick and it will be harder for Satan to fool us. Getting closer to Him also means seeing His creative power in the beauty of nature around us. The loveliness of the flower, the beauty in the eyes of someone we love, the sound of the birds. To feel His presence in both triumph and tragedy. Aren't these things better than being overwhelmed by the wicked things of the world?

Secondly, we can mold our image into the image of Christ.(Rom.8:29)..As we rid ourselves of the weights of the world, we can take on the characteristics of goodness as described by the "fruits of the spirit" in Galatians 5:22&23. Ask ourselves in a clear and simple way, what we can remove and add to be more Christ-like.

Lets live our days so that we can look into that mirror and smile. Smile because in it we can see the handiwork of our Lord. As we look in earnest for God we will surely become more like Him. "And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, and are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."

Have a wonderful day....Make a difference....Love mark Phil.4 :11
