For most of us, when we look in the mirror, we see the person we know. We see all the flaws, defects and failings. However, this person we see is not the person everyone else sees. Others see us more based on our actions, our words and our deeds.
God, on the other hand, sees us more fully than anyone else. He sees us more clearly than we see ourselves. And, as I’ve said many times before, He STILL loves us. And, He STILL wants us close to Him.
As followers of Christ, we should be able to honestly see ourselves for who we really are. We should also be able to honestly see the person we know we should be. And, if we are truly followers, we should be on a continual path, waking towards that Christ-like image.
The problem is, there is a huge gap in the road. The gap is our own sinful nature. Fortunately for us, God is the Great Bridge Builder! He took action 2,000 years ago to span that great divide! All you have to do is keep walking towards Him.
My thought for your week: Do everything you can this week to get closer to God! Aim yourself in His direction and start walking!
