The Mirror Reflection

And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God. 
(Revelation 15:2 NASB)

   Nestled at the 9,600 foot elevation with a view of the Beckwith Mountains is Lost Lake and Dollar Lake.  Stunning scenery, hiking trails, canoeing and fishing along with nineteen campsites await the outdoor adventurer.  The surrounding mountain peaks are reflected in the clear blue water, and no better place can be found for quietness and solitude.

   Early morning devotions by the glass like lake reminded me that we are to mirror God's image; to magnify, exalt, and glorify our Creator.  People who don't know God personally should be able to see his reflection in us. Someone has said, "We are the only Bible some people will ever see."

   What happens when you throw a stone in the water?  The perfect reflection is distorted.  God's image in us is distorted when we allow sin to enter and upset our relationship.  Are you protecting the relationship by getting rid of the stones?
