Happy Day! Today is a day when people who claim the name of Christ as theirs gather together all over the world to corporately worship God.
I heard a teacher once say we are to be the reflection of Christ to the world. Much like the still water reflects the image of the hills behind it in the morning light.
Sounds lovely. Looks lovely. That works when you are completely still.
But what happens when you move? when the storms of life come? The reflection is blurred.
If we are only to reflect God to the world then we either have to sit still on the sidelines of life or we run the risk of a blurred reflection of God.
Which of course is what we do as we live our lives.
Emily Freeman has written a great book, A Million Little Ways, that brings out a different image of how we reflect God to the world. It’s actually not reflecting at all.
God’s life in us comes out of us as we are fully who and how we are intended by our Creator to be. It is the art of our life that most accurately shows God’s image to the world. in A Million Little Ways.
This book is a transforming book. A must read. I am thrilled by the freedom Emily’s words bring to my heart. Her reflection on God’s Word shows me how I can be free to move through the world being me; not stifled by trying to be a carbon copy of the most upright person I know or by thinking I am to stoically sit and reflect the image of God to the world.
Read Emily’s book.
