Reflecting the Son

Let’s talk for a moment about reflecting the Son. You know, we’ve had some dark winter days of late. The cloud cover hasn’t allowed the sun to shine through very often.

And then Tuesday happened.

The kids had a 2-hour delay from school, so I was able to lounge in bed a little longer than normal. When I glanced out my window around 9am, it was almost blinding.

The sun shining off the freshly-fallen snow was so bright and life-giving. It sharply contrasted the drab gray that I had grown accustomed to. The light reminded me of two truths from Scripture.

  1. How powerful the picture of Isaiah 1:18 is. “Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” How clean He makes us!
  2. Just like the snow reflects the sun and makes this world a brighter place, so our lives should reflect the Son and make this world a brighter place.

When people look at us, do they see joy and life or do they see sorrow and pain? Is the brightness so different that they literally stop for a moment and wonder? “What do they have, that I don’t?” Do they even notice a difference at all?

Jesus gives us a very clear example of how we reflect Him in Matthew 25:35-36,40:
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me…..Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Are you reflecting the Son? He does all the work. We just need to spend time with Him.
