David Jeremiah daily devotional March 14 2022 :
Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your decrees!
Recommended Reading: 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
In the 1980s, a surgeon and his party were floating down the Colorado River when their raft got away from them. The cord wrapped around the doctor’s leg and dragged him across the rocks. His son cut the cord, but the wounded man was stranded with no way out. But a friend had a small mirror—a signal mirror. Using Morse code, the friend sent out a series of flashes that caught the eye of a pilot in a jetliner flying at 35,000 feet. The plane radioed for help, and soon the injured rafter was lifted to safety.
We don’t have to be very large, strong, important, or well-known to reflect the Lord’s glory. Signal mirrors are small enough to fit into any backpack or pants pocket. Yet they’re capable of transmitting signals as far as one hundred miles in the right conditions. Though we may be small and our time on earth fleeting, “all of us…can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image” (2 Corinthians 3:18, NLT).
Since we have entered into union with Christ, the life of Christ should be reflected in our lives.
