12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

1 CORINTHIANS 13:12 NKJV

When you look at yourself, what do you see? That is a question that I am going to ask in my upcoming sermon this week. Typically, when we look at our reflection in a mirror, we’re checking for any flaws, blemishes, and imperfections so that we can fix ourselves up and look good. If only there was a mirror that we could look into and be able to see the reflection of our soul. Could you imagine what you would see if you were able to look into such a mirror?

This is something that I wish people would think about. The reason I say this is because we hardly ever give consideration into looking at who we truly are. You see, your soul – who you are on the inside – is the true you. I feel like the way that we examine our outward appearance in a mirror is how we ought to examine our inner person. If only we cared about our soul the way that we care about our outward appearance.

You see, if we could see the reflection of our soul in a mirror, some of us would be downright frightened by the image reflected back in that mirror. If only we could see what our soul looks like, some of us would do our very best to make corrections – fix those flaws and blemishes. We would do this so that when we present ourselves before the Lord, we would not appear as a filthy mess. Give thought today to what you truly look like – not your outward appearance but that inward person.
