I. Truths About Mirror

A.
1.
The mirror reflects the one who is facing it.
– a lot of times, we become ignorant of the word of God. When we read the word of God, we forget that we become a reflection of what we read.

Matthew 6:1
(how we should be when we reflect or pray)

Greatest sin is committed when we do a righteous act: when do it with a wrong motive— unknowingly.

e.g.
When we hear or read something, we often think of other people how they should’ve been present or are able to read it for it is about them. What we miss to realize, at any given moment, whatever we hear or read, it’s intended for us.

2.A mirror is as good as the way we respond to it.
– we have to look at our attitudes towards things.

a.Let’s Look At Our Attitude Towards the Scripture. ASK:

1. Do you believe it’s true and perfect?

Psalms 19:7
(how the Law of the Lord- the Scripture- is perfect, trustworthy; it revives our soul;)

Lamentations 3:23
(what the Lord should be to us)

Romans 14:4
(we are not to say what someone’s deed is; we are accountable for each other’s actions- individually; we only know a fragment of a story)

2 Thessalonians 5:18
(in everything- anything at all- give thanks)

Psalms 19:8
(how God’s commands are right, giving joy to the heart; including having to love the enemies)

2.Do you believe it’s authoritative?

– the words in the Bible are not just from the men who wrote it, they are from God.

3. Do you have the reverence to the word of God?

– God may not explicitly tell us what to do, but just by reading His words, guides us.

There is something about the word of God.

b.The Ones Who Benefit From the Bible Are Those Who:

1. Look intently into the perfect Law.

James 1:22
(let’s not just look at a mirror and leave, forgetting what we look like; read the bible and not just on Sundays when we go to church; don’t just read it, study it)

2. Continue to do it.

don’t just master the Words. Let the words master you.

3. Not forgetting what you heard/read but doing it.

– we need to have the right attitude (not being too defensive)

It’s one thing to know the word, and it’s another to do the word
