Are we the kind of friend to others that God is to us? As I read back over yesterday’s devotional and the list of things God does for me, it’s sad to realize how far short I fall in my friendship with others. To be the kind of friend God is we must have His supernatural power! God’s presence is key to an imperfect person becoming a more perfect friend. We must be more like Him!

What does that look like?

When you look in the mirror, you see your image. It takes no effort for you to be you–right? The mirror doesn’t lie. Every time you look in the mirror it will always be you. Similarly, when we’re born again we have a new image. God’s Word tells us that by His Spirit we are changed into His image: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:17-18‬)

In order for a mirror to properly reflect an image, it must be in the light and it must be clean and uncovered. When we are born again, God makes us a mirror that is supposed to reflect Him. The closer we get to God, the less sin clouds the mirror and the more Him is reflected in us.

When He is the most important part of who we are, we naturally and easily reflect Him–just like when we look at our own face in a mirror. It isn’t a struggle. As we begin to reflect Him, we become the kind of friend to others that He is to us. His perfection transforms us. As we’re changed, we become an amazing friend!
