baby-mirrorWe are born into Creation tiny and helpless, so tiny, so helpless and so burdensome that some find it convenient to think of infants as mere things. Thus, they would have, with the most proper sanitary etiquette, disposed of us before we were born.

Nevertheless, God brought us into His creation. Why? Isn’t that the question we each ask?Why me? When we stand at the peak of a hill, look down from a high flying jet, gaze into the stars, or just sit quietly, contemplating how little we know, don’t we wonder? I am so small and insignificant. When God created me, why did He bother?

We know He should not have made us. In our hidden thoughts, we keep a secret from our self. We each know we are unworthy of being. Perhaps that is why some hate God. He forces us to examine ourselves. Doesn’t the Bible hold up a mirror for each of us to look into and see ourselves as we are?

When we study the Bible carefully, do we find the reflection of a perfect person, or do we see ourselves as God sees us? Doesn’t the Bible show us we are sinners?

When we begin to understand we are sinners, what do we do? Here the Apostle James explains.

James 1:22-25 English Standard Version (ESV)

22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

Very few people, including Christians — including me, are truly doers of the word.  Very few love their neighbors as they love themselves. So when we begin to understand we are sinners, what can we do? The answer to that problem explains why the apostles preached about Christ Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. When Jesus died for our sins, He made it possible for us to repent of our sins and work towards perfect holiness. When in perfect obedience to the Father Jesus died for our sins, He gave each of us a priceless gift. However, He did not make us perfect. He left us with a free will. We can still make wrong choices. Fortunately, we can pray for an indwelling of the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-31). We can accept God’s grace. We can accept God’s love and return it. We can slowly become less unworthy of being.

When will we like Jesus become perfectly obedient to the Father? I do not know. Who knows what God has planned? It could take an eternity for us to become worthy of being created, but even though we are sinners Jesus loved each of us to enough to die for us. I just know accepting the gift of God’s grace is far better than refusing, living in sin, and dying for eternity in Hell.

1 Corinthians 2:9 English Standard Version (ESV)

But, as it is written,

“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him”—
