THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
AS BELIEVERS, WE ARE EMPOWERED BY THE SAME SPIRIT THAT RAISED CHRIST FROM THE DEAD
When you REFLECT something, you are exhibiting its LIKENESS. You are displaying its CHARACTERISTICS. Like a mirror, the Bible tells us that we should reflect the character and LIKENESS of Jesus. We should have His same ATTITUDE.
That may sound like a pretty tall order; after all, Jesus was the Son of GOD. But remember, when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, WE become sons and daughters of God, TOO. We become EMPOWERED by the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead. That means we have the same POWER, the same spirit of HUMILITY, the same STRENGTH, and the same LOVE on the inside. We are EQUIPPED to follow His example and do what HE did. What did He do? Scripture says that Jesus went around doing GOOD and bringing HEALING to others; physically, spiritually AND emotionally.
Notice that today’s verse starts by saying, “LET…” In other words, WE have to open the door for God to work in our lives. We have to be the ones to humbly invite HIM in. Let that be your goal today—open your HEART to Him so you can REFLECT HIM in your attitude and actions!
“Have this same attitude in yourselves which was in Christ Jesus [look to Him as your example in selfless humility].”
(Philippians 2:5, AMP)
