There is a lion within every one of us called “self.” You will find that the biggest enemy you will have to your success, to going where you can and should go, and being who can and should be will always be you. If you want to win the battle of life the first battle you have to win is the one over yourself. In his letter to the church at Corinth, Paul talked about living the Christian life which is a life lived for the glory of God and under the power of the gospel in terms of running a race and he tells us that if you are going to win this race and live what we call the cross-shaped life, it begins and ends with self-control.
In this series we are calling “Mirror Image”, we are not talking about what you see physically when you look in a mirror. We are talking about what you see spiritually, and morally, and ethically when you look in a mirror. We are going to be talking about the most important thing about all of us, and that is our character.
