Looking at the Man in the Mirror: A Study of James
The Cornerstone of Our Faith
The mirror doesn't lie. Our enemies might try to convince us that we are less than we really are. Our friends might even flatter us into believing that we're more than we really are. The mirror tells us the truth — the good, the bad, and sometimes even the ugly.
God's Word is the true mirror that allows us to look deeply into our own hearts and see as God sees. James, the brother of Jesus, holds God's mirror and encourages us to fix what is out of place and to clean whatever is dirty. We strive to look like Jesus in today's world.
