The Apostle James said we should be doers of the word and not just hearers. He said that anyone who is not a doer of the word is just like a person who looks into a mirror and then leaves forgets what he looks like. We are to look into the Word of God as a mirror and find ourselves in that Word and proceed to be a reflection of God’s word in our daily lives. So when we located ourselves in The Bible and live our lives accordingly then we take on the image of the Word of God. The way we locate ourselves is to identify with Christ as His followers. We are called “In Christ” followers or believers. Therefore whenever you see those little words “In Christ”, look and see what is say, because The Bible is talking about you and who you are in God’s eyes. For example when we read in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) “17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new”. We see that our past is gone and our future is yet to be. However, our future is not determined by our past failures or mistakes.
So Locate yourself in the Word, Identify with what you see there and the Declare that is who you are “In Christ.”
