Thought of the Day !!

And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more.
                                  2 Corinthians 3:18 (NLT)

One purpose of being a Christian is to be a reflection of Christ.  After we are born again from the Spirit, or come into the "New Birth", as John Wesley put it, we take on a life with Christ.  This is a life where Christ abides inside of us, glowing for others to see.    

The question today for each of us to think about is this.  If we were to open ourselves up, what would we find inside?  The answer should be Christ and His love if we are truly Christians.  But sometimes people forget what they are supposed to be reflecting and allow themselves and their own selfishness to take over where Christ once supposedly abided.  

This life is not about you or me.  It is about love of God and love of each other.  If our lives begin being all about what we can do or what we can earn or what we have accomplished, then our reflections will be of ourselves.

If, on the other hand, people see in us kindness, humility, unselfish behavior and the other aspects of the love of Christ, then we are reflecting Christ.  Which will you reflect today?

In the love of Christ,
