Reflecting God Clearly


As we see in Ephesians we are to renew our mind and then it tells us to not grieve the Holy Spirit by which we were sealed.


In this season as God has marked us to be his people, dedication comes once a year in the form of a celebration but yet it really is a daily thing.


Every day the enemy will try to put things upon our mirror that would hinder us being able to reflect God.


As we choose to renew our mind and our thoughts our actions and what we do will stay a clear reflection of God.


In this day and age the enemy has told people that there are many truths apart from God's allowing flesh to exalt itself above the knowledge of God.


We must recognize and align ourselves with his truth.


Questions:


What does reflecting God look like to you?


What did you hear in the portion of His truth versus our truth?


What part of the word came alive to you?

What a great word Pastor Aaron!


1 What does reflecting God look like?

It's an undeniable image of what He is. I love how you brought it out but it's reflecting all of who He is and can't be just a part of it.


2 Well just like how it was mentioned tonight on the Sabbath! His truth might not be what we always want to hear but it is what is needed! It will renew us so and it will transform us. When we live in our truth we get comfortable and we think we are always right!


3 It it's time to get out of repetition the devil wants to wear a stone by this what a powerful…

Clear! Representing who God is, not who we think a person wants Him to be. What does love do?


What did you hear in the portion of His truth versus our truth?

Ps Aaron spoke about personalities, and it occurred to me that I am black and white. It made me wonder if I was missing the "color" portion of His truth. What does love say? I have stopped to examine what I believe and say to see if it is "my truth" or His Truth." Wow!

What part of the word came alive to you?

The WOW factor concerning the Word, like as a child, should be our character that remains…

Great Post and great application prayer on Wednesday night. "The WOW factor concerning the Word, like as a child, should be our character that remains in awe of Him. The veil is stealing the Truth from people because they either can't see it or don't understand it. What does love say and do?" -- Powerful truth that made me realize there are times I lose my awe of Him and take for granted how good He is to me/us!

Reflecting God looks like 1 Corinthians 13...but not just the parts we like. lol! "Love suffers long and is kind" not "love suffers long and is disgruntled about it". If we can substitute our wants and our truth we will allow specs on the mirror and distort the image of who God is to the people around us. And if we are the only reflection of God that this world sees, will they see a clear reflection?


What did you hear in the portion of His truth versus our truth?

Ps. Aaron made the statement "His truth changes the things I can not change". His truth will always cause growth and change.…

Great post Melissa!

Definitely an eye opener... Ignoring something doesn't remove it! I thought about this and realized that it is possible the reason people "ignore" things is because they DON"T KNOW HOW to deal with it. I personally don't think I have stopped to consider that! I think I looked at it as if they didn't want to deal with it. Willingness to say "this doesn't work" is the first step, second step - His truth will either "clean it up," fix it, or it has to be disposed of to, fully reflect Him.

What does reflecting God look like to you?


I’m not God, but meant to be His representative on earth. I’m only a part of His creation, so what I show should point to Him (reflect), even if it’s not the fullness thereof. But the piece I show should be what He gives me to show, not limited by just my favorite aspect. Like Pastor Aaron said “Don’t just grab the part of God we like the most and miss the rest… and the goodness in it”


What did you hear in the portion of His truth versus our truth?


The part about “I’m going to worship God how I feel right doing it” making it about self instead of the…

Fantastic message Ps Aaron!


What does reflecting God look like to you?

It looks like doing what He does and saying what He says. Unfortunately that image has been very distorted because so often when God would say encourage, I want to rebuke; when God would say forgive and restore, I want to do just the opposite. Even if I know what His word says, if I don't have and know His heart, I can distort the reflection.

When we live our own truth it may seem right to us but it leads to death (away from the presence of God). His truth is enough to b…
