The Bible does not help to point out to us our faults and imperfections so that we may correct or change them, contrary to what many people believe.
The Bible (mirror) on the contrary, helps us to constantly see ourselves for who our Father God sees us. He see us perfect people in Christ, without blame and Spirit born, a.k.a eternally made of Love!
The Mirror is therefore our constant reminder of our realities in Christ so that we can be quickened in our mortal bodies to act accordingly.
Our spirits are whole, complete and mature in Christ but our minds would never agree because they know very little.
We are ourselves spirits, because man is essentially a spirit.
If I choose to call our spirits lions, then I would simply say that our minds are kittens, not even a cub.
What we know in our minds usually influence our works or doings, and most times, our minds make us produce kitten( lower) behaviors as opposed to the lion (higher) works that belong with our spirits, our hearts.
Therefore, whenever we look into the word, we force our kitten minds to see the lion spirits we truly are. This makes us to act accordingly. The mirror principle works by helping us to constantly keep in touch with our most basic realities in the presence of the Father’s redeeming love.
You might ask why our minds love to be kittens. I’d just tell you that our mind is the faculty in our hearts that relates directly with the physical or natural realms via the portals of the five senses. That’s why.
The thing is, if your acts are wrong and you feel like you are not a fruitful Christian, here is what you would want to do:
- Go Receive the Father’s Loving-thing parcel, a.k.a the too good to be true news, the Gospel.
- Look in the word, the mirror; I repeat look in the mirror.
- Look in the mirror again for that’s the true legit thing you’ve got, I repeat, look away from yourself!
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.
2 Corinthians 3:18. AMP
…Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and , after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like…
James 1: 23-24, NIV
