When you study the Word of God, you are actually looking into the mirror of God, and you see yourself. As you study and meditate on the Word, what you see is the glory of God, and that glory is actually your true reflection, because Word of God mirrors you. It shows your identity, origin, potentials, and ability in Christ Jesus.
When we preach the Gospel of Christ and teach others the Word, we are holding God’s mirror to them so they can see themselves in the Word like we see ourself, know who they are, as well as their rights and abilities in Christ.
The one that hitherto thought he was a sinner, unworthy and underserving of God’s love, suddenly he sees that he is loved of by God. The one who thought he was condemned suddenly discovers that Christ has paid the price for his salvation, and he immediately begins to walk in that light.
The power of the Word of God works through the mirror principle. The Word does not only show you who you are, it also imparts to you the ability to live accordingly. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Notice carefully the choice of words, as inspired by the Spirit in above verse: Christ Jesus was made sin for you, that you might be made the righteousness of God in Him! You have become the very expression of His righteousness. You are to see yourself that way; accept it, and live accordingly.
Keep studying and meditating on the Word of God, for the more you do, the more His glory is increased and revealed in, and through, you.
