Mirror, Mirror, Art Thou Blessed?- Part Two

Theory is not the important aspect of faith; Practice is! How about a glass of Scripture to prove this point? "Whoever has this world's good and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? Let us not in word or in tongue but in deed and in truth"- 1 John 3:17-18. If you send a starving brother or sister away with only your well wishes, how does the love of God abide in you? What about the next time you took a glance in your spiritual mirror? How would your soul look to you at that moment?

"Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves"- James 1:22. All too many of us glance into our spiritual mirror and we can only see darkly for the moment. Yet one day we shall see face to face. It takes the light of Christ to permeate that dark mirror because He is the light of the world (John 8:12). Those that follow Him will not walk in darkness but have the light of life.

When you become doers of the word, and not hearers only, you begin to harvest the blessings of the glass of Scripture to the point where discernment becomes a part of your soul. Does your soul have the habitual action of having your senses exercised to discern both good and evil (Hebrews 5:14)? If not, then your glass of Scripture is only half-full, if even that. The word of God to this evangelist is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of his heart as we partake of the glass of Scripture often and we can honestly say that we do get a blessing out of our mirror. Do you?

Well done, David. Christianity is accomplished by not so much by what we say we believe, but by what we do in helping our brothers and sisters. Right on!
