GROWING IN CHRIST

"Reflectors of Christ"

Date published: 07/30/2011

Mark 3:11 “Whenever the evil spirits saw Him (Jesus), they fell down before Him and cried out, ‘You are the Son of God.’"  (NIV)

Jesus did not have to speak or preach to let others know something was different about Him.  Jesus’ life reflected godliness and a difference that brought notice to all those around Him.  In the same way, your life is to reflect the life of Christ in you.  2 Corinthians 3:2-3 says, “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody.  You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”  Men and women throughout time have consistently demonstrated the inability of reflecting a godly life out of their own willpower.  Through the resurrected Christ, you are now able to reflect His life and glory through the work of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 8:9 says, “You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.  And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.”  You need to purpose to allow God to be reflected in you through the power of the Holy Spirit.  If you are to reflect the face of God, you need to spend time in His Word and prayer.  Luke 6:45 says, “The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.  For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.”  Fill your heart with the Word of God and constantly spend time with Him in prayer.

2 Corinthians 5:20 “We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us.  We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.”  (NIV)
