In our ladies Bible class at church we are reading Max Lucado’s book called, It’s Not About Me. We discussed the first chapter last week. One of his main points in the chapter is that we should be Son Reflectors in the same way that the moon is a sun reflector. The moon does not generate her own light but instead reflects the light of the sun. In the same way we should reflect Jesus’ glory. We need to witness God and share that witness with others.
2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. (ESV)
or here is the verse again in the Message:
All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
What an amazing thought!
And then God allowed me a very small glimpse of his glory just to keep this idea in my mind.
I was driving home Friday night from the store and the biggest, orangest, most beautiful moon was shining in the sky.
I was listening to KLOVE and this is the song that was playing on the radio:
Salvador – Shine
From the album Dismiss the Mystery
I woke up to another day
Another day to celebrate
Your beauty and your mystery, it’s more than any eye can see
I’m not the man I was before
With You, my life is so much more
Break the chains and open doors to a world I can’t ignore
Lord let me shine, shine like the moon
A reflection of you in all that I do
Lord let me be a light for your truth
Light of the world, I wanna be used to shine for you
As simple as a passing smile
Or listening a little while
To someone that’s convinced that they are in this all alone
Here’s my chance to share the news
To introduce the good that’s you
Here you go again, you never cease to blow my mind
You’re the love that we all need
You lift us up to our feet
You hold the key to eternity
The King of Kings alive in me
May God be praised and may I become a reflection of His glory.
