L E T T H E R E B E L I G H T ——-
W O R S H I P is a reflective expression
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
2 Corinthians 3:17-18 NIV
—— If I have been filled with His life, then I cannot contain my response, I have become an active EXPRESSION for His divine purpose! (Charakter – Greek: “IMAGE”, “EXPRESSSION”, “LIKENESS”)
So I say, let there be light! In pursuing a life of Worship, realize we were created to reflect Jesus. Lord, form me to be an INSTRUMENT of Your glory, let me become pure in Character, TO REFLECT You —- “CHARAKTER” in Greek means “EXPRESSION”, “IMAGE”, “LIKENESS”—- the instrument used for engraving or carving…..the mark stamped upon that instrument or wrought out on it……
a mark or figure burned in (Lev. 13:
or stamped on, an impression
the exact expression (the image) of any person or thing, marked likeness, precise reproduction in every respect.
Worship is: TOTAL surrender to God.
“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.””
John 4:24 HCSB ”truth”= “aletheia” “reality”
Let my life bring the REALITY OF JESUS into this world! Living out every part of my life as a REFLECTION of Him, is a Worshiper’s ultimate goal.
