Cold Copy,Fun House Mirror,Window

Postby surealworld » Mon Feb 17, 2020 12:02 pm

Dear friends,
Here is a thought ,or a spiritual illustration that came to me during prayer this morning.
How would one compare their walk with God?
How would those who came in contact with,or better yet knew the one personally?
How would the one's spiritual walk be compared to,or remembered as?
To me their a three object that a person's walk with God can be compared to to.
The first i thought of ,was a cold printed copy of the Bible.
Meaning they know every word that is printed in the Bible,
But they are deaf and blind toward it's teachings.
I would say this person is religiously devout ,but does not have a personal relationship with God.
It like a purchaser studying a product but never making the commitment to buy.
The second I thought of , was a mirror.
Meaning they Have ears that hear, and eye that see,they practice the word with understanding in their live.
But like a mirror in a fun house, they are only a distorted reflection of Christ , not the total clear image.
These are the people who's obedience to God's authority in their life,and their commitment to serving the Lord is waving, more often then being consistent .
The third I thought of, was a window
A person who 's eye and ears are focused on the Word,
They live their life in the light of understanding the Truth.
Like a window ,their is nothing hindering the light to pass through it. So is the person who summit their life completely to God's authority,and they submit their lives to the unwavering service to God.
By walking closely with God,people around them can see Christ beaming through them.
So let us ask our selves,on a continual bases,"what do people see when they interact with us?
What kind of person will people remember us as being,when we pass away.
Were we a cold copy of the Bible,
Were we a distorted mirror in a fun house
Were we a window that allow true light to pass through.
