Who Do We Reflect? Part I
We can learn several spiritual lessons from this. In the Christian life, the water represents us, and the trees or other objects represent God or Satan. As human beings, each and everyone of us is going to imitate or reflect one side or the other: God or Satan. There is no neutral ground! Who do we reflect? Romans 6:16 says,"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or obedience unto righteousness?"
A second lesson we can learn, is that whatever we are surrounded with, we will tend to reflect it, or imitate it. So we really need to be careful with what and who we associate with! If we spend time reading God's Word and in prayer and beholding the character of Christ, we will continue to become more and more like Him. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says,"But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord."
On the other hand, if we don't spend time with the Lord, and don't associate with Godly people, we will not reflect God anymore but Satan's way. Proverbs 13:20 says, "He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed."
May we always reflect Jesus in all that we say and do!
