Reflections of Truth

English Audio Version

The mirror doesn’t lie.

We’ve heard that, and it’s true. The mirror reflects just what’s put in front of it.

Exactly.

Our job is to study the reflection honestly and see what it really shows.

Romans 2:21-23 gives us five ways we can be misled into thinking we’re walking with Christ.

1. “You then who teach others, do you not teach yourself?”

Do we practice what we preach? It’s that simple.

2. “While you preach against stealing, do you steal?”

If we encourage generosity in others, are we equally ready to give?

3. “You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery?”

Do we chafe against our Christian lifestyle, all the while smiling in church?

4. “You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?”

Do we profit in the marketplace from the very things we teach against?

5. “You who boast in the law dishonor God by breaking the law.”

How fast is our driving or accurate are our IRS deductions? How diligent is our adherence to man’s law, as well as God’s law?

Our life is a mirror, and if we can’t see the reflection, everyone around us can.

That pen we brought home from work . . .

Filling our gas tank on the company account . . .

Counting that extra candy bar the cashier failed to ring up as a blessing from God . . .

What we reflect is who we are. Let’s let God be the reflection we see looking back at us.

When the death of trust scars our hearts, we must find even greater kindness to heal the wound.
