“But who so looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” (James 1:25).
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome– a widely acknowledged Man of God – has dedicated his life to enriching lives with motivating, faith-filled words from the Bible. More often than not, he rolls out encouraging messages to make God’s people understand the methods of living a purposeful life.
Here we are sharing one of his messages addressing His children across the world.
“As Christians, we’re called to live and act like God. How is that possible? You might want to ask! This is possible through the mirror principle of the Word. The Word of God is the mirror of God. The Bible says anyone who hears the Word and doesn’t act accordingly is like a man who sees himself in a mirror, turns around and forgets what he looks like (James 1:23-24). In other words, God expects you to hear His Word and do accordingly.
The problem, however, is that many don’t know how the Word of God works. Now, the mirror principle of the Word is that you see yourself as what God sees you to be in His Word, and then act accordingly. It means you should act according to the Word. For instance, in the Word, the mirror of God, He says, you’re a new creation of Christ Jesus. That is God’s image and reflection of you. See that image and endorse it. Act like it is true; for it is true. Again, He shows you in the Word that you’re the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus; see it so.
That’s His image of you. Seeing yourself in the Word, the mirror of God, and acting accordingly is the way to live in the reality of your inheritance in Christ. That’s how to enjoy all that God has made available to you in Christ Jesus. So keep looking into the mirror of God; keep studying and listening to the Word of God. As you do, you’ll realize the glory you see in the Word. This is the mirror principle of the Word.”
This is certainly an encouraging message from the anointed Man of God. For more such words, visit pastorchrisonline.org.
