MY REFLECTION

October 25, 2021


Morning Psalms 103:5

Noon Psalms 5

Evening John 3:30


Does my reflection respond to the desires of the flesh, or to the eyes and the pride of life, or do I reflect the will of God? Knowing that life is very short and already having embarked on a path full of solemn promises made before the Most High, we waste the time that is given to us by being ashamed of our image. This is a sad consequence of not understanding that by accepting the Lord, our desires no longer prevail; but rather, out of love for the One who gave Himself for us, the "I" must be subject to Him. Do I rejoice because I dress in a way that pleases God? Is it a reason for joy that I dedicate my youth and my time to the service of the Gospel? If the answer is “yes”, then we can be convinced that it is not our own reflection that we see and perceive, but the reflection of Jesus Christ, and therefore we are part of a select group of blessed people who, by confessing Him now in front of men, will enjoy of the high privilege that Jesus intercedes for us before the Father. We will always feel tempted to look at ourselves in the mirror seeking to resemble the deformed and sad world, but let's not give in, we should always be like the One who gave it all for us on the cross of Calvary.


I like my reflection because it is not me, but Jesus Christ who lives in me.

Morning Psalms 103:5

Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s



Noon Psalms 5

1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.

5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.



Evening John 3:30

He must increase, but I must decrease.
