The Man in the Background of the Mirror
The mirror doesn’t lie. It shows us the best and the worst of who we really are. God’s Word is the mirror that allows us to see as God sees. As we are obedient to His Word, we become more and more like the mirror?Jesus Christ. If we truly reflect God’s Word, then His image will be the one that others see when they look at us.
Our Christian walk is a continual process of learning to become more like Christ, and that process will not be complete until we see Christ face-to-face in the mirror of His Word. In this follow-up to Looking at the Man in the Mirror, Tommy Brooks reviews with readers what we must do to obtain the Christ-like spirit we want in our obedience to His Word.
