Reflect Jesus

Display Him to the world around you!

How do you reflect someone?

1.  You have to be looking towards them.  For example:  A diamond ring pointed towards or facing the sun reflects the suns or SHINES.  If it is pointed down, it does not reflect the sun.   So lift your head, turn towards the Son!  You will reflect Him if you look to Him!

2.  When you look at your reflection in the mirror, you have to look at yourself to reflect yourself right? Keep your eyes on Jesus to reflect Him.  Reflect means:  to give back a likeness...Be like Him, imitate Jesus!

3.  Know Him!  Spend time with the Lover of your soul.  Think on Him always, think on His ways, His way of being and doing, and then be and do.  How do you get to know someone?  By spending time with them, and talking to them, and looking at them, studying every feature.  Not only the shape, proportions, form, or outward appearance of Him, but also the distinctive aspect, quality and characteristics of Him.  Asking to hear His heart for you, and for others.  Listen, hear.

Then SHINE!  Display Him to the world around you.  

Display:  To hold up to view.  Hold Him up to the world through you.

Reveal Him.  Reflect Him.  Make Him known.
