Have you ever stood outside on a clear night with a full moon? It's amazing how much you can see in that light. But all that radiance and illumination is simply reflected light. The moon has no light of its own. Sunlight reflecting off the moon's surface causes the moon to glow.
So it is with those of us who have life in Jesus. One day, we will be all that we were designed to be; we will be like Jesus in character. We will be, in the fullest sense, the children of God. And we will be filled with the glory of God.
But the glory that is seen in us will be reflected glory. God Himself will illuminate us and the Lamb will be the light that is seen in us. Our responsibility now is to reflect the beauty of Jesus in our lives so that others can see Him. Like a mirror, where others see Jesus in you...in His grip.

Coach's tip - Taking the approach of asking for forgiveness instead of permission only lasts so long.
