Beholding Yourself In The Word by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Beholding Yourself In The Word by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And all of us, as with unveiled face,
[because we] continued to behold [in
the Word of God] as in a mirror the
glory of the Lord, are constantly being
transfigured into His very own image in
ever increasing splendor and from one
degree of glory to another… (2
Corinthians 3:18 AMPC).

 When you study the Word of God, you’re
actually looking into the mirror of God,
and you see yourself. As you study and
meditate, what you see is the glory of God, and that
glory is actually your true reflection, because God’s
Word mirrors you. It shows your identity, origin,
potentials, and ability in Christ Jesus.

When we preach the Gospel and teach others
the Word, we’re holding God’s mirror to them so they
can see themselves in the Word, know who they are,
as well as their rights and abilities in Christ. The one
who hitherto thought he was a sinner, unworthy and
underserving of God’s love, suddenly sees that he’s
loved of God. The one who thought he was
condemned suddenly discovers that Christ has paid the
price for his salvation, and immediately begins to walk
in that light. That’s the power of God’s Word; it works
through the mirror principle.

The Word doesn’t only show you who you are,
it also imparts to you the ability to live accordingly. For
example, 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For he hath made
him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might  be made the righteousness of God in him.” Notice
carefully the choice of words, as inspired by the Spirit
in this verse: Christ Jesus was made sin for you, that
you might be made the righteousness of God in Him!
This means you’ve become the very expression of His
righteousness. You’re to see yourself that way; accept
it, and live accordingly.

Keep studying and meditating on the Word of
God, for the more you do, the more His glory is
increased and revealed in, and through, you.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for making me the
expression of your righteousness, unveiling your
goodness and excellence to the world. Thank you for
the ability to see the glorious realities in your Word,
and see who I am and what you’ve called and made
me in Christ. I walk in the reality of my inheritance,
authority, and ability in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
