My friend Pastor Miles McPherson has released a great new book called “God In The Mirror.” If you don’t know anything about Miles, he’s a former defensive back for the San Diego Chargers – turned your youth evangelist – turned Senior Pastor of The Rock Church in San Diego. He has some very unique stories and life experiences, all of which have shaped his life and have helped him to truly understand that God created him in His image.
Miles illustrates that God created image this way, “We’re designed to actively pursue and reﬂect the glory of God through our lives. Like diamonds, we can only reﬂect the light that shines onto us; we have no twinkle of our own. The only light shining onto our image, our spiritual diamond, is the light of God’s glory, which is projected onto us each and every day.”
Below is an acrostic featured in God In The Mirror Book to help walk you through your personal IMAGE Journey. This provides an outline for your journey through the book.
The IMAGE Journey
I = Individually Unique
You’re unique, one of a kind. No one can take your
place in God’s universal design.
M = Moral Mirror
You’re created to reﬂect God’s moral character, His
heart, mind, and holiness.
A = Authority to Rule
You’ve been empowered with the authority over your
physical and spiritual environment, not people.
G = God’s Friend
You’ve been created to have, as a friend of God, an
intimate, loving relationship with Him.
E = Eternal
You’ve been designed to live forever with God.
Do you find yourself finding your identity in what other people think? Do you look in the mirror and not like what you see? Is there a gap between what the Bible says you are and who you think you are? Do you want to look in the mirror and be pleased by what you see? Do you want to look in the mirror and know that what you see is pleasing to God? You should read God In the Mirror. This book is a great reminder and tool to truly understand our purpose and reach our God-ordained potential.
“Your purpose is important, intentional, and God ordained. Consequently, God has made very speciﬁc promises and commitments just to you. He’s designed you to fulﬁll your unique purpose in life. He created you to stand out as one of a kind—unlike anyone on earth—so please stop trying to ﬁt in and be like everyone else. You’re not like everyone else. God is equipping and preparing you to live an individual and unique life, re-ﬂecting the aspects of God that you were ordained to reﬂect.” ~Miles McPherson
