The Man in the Mirror

"Jesus is the spiritual lens in human likeness which makes visible to the material creature Him who is invisible. He is your elder brother who, in the flesh, makes known to you a Being of infinite attributes whom not even the celestial hosts can presume fully to understand. But all of this must consist in the personal experience of the individual believer." - Urantia Book 169:4.13, "The Father and His Kingdom" 

Jesus is the "man in the mirror". And as we wholeheartedly and consistently look at the mirror, we become transformed more and more to be like Him - like the man in the mirror. To look at the mirror is to see Jesus - to see His spiritual nature - character, attributes, power, love, etc. And as we see, we are pulled closer to God the Father because Jesus is a revelation of the Father. Yes, "Jesus is a revelation of the Father". This is why he said, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father. " 

The habit of looking at the mirror involves personal, daily spiritual experiences. It is these experiences of the faith-liberated individual believer that reveals God as FATHER - the Father of spirits who has infinite, unlimited wonderful attributes. These attributes begin to rub off on us, making us supernatural human beings, mighty warriors in this life and in the hereafter. Such is the stuffs of those who the great Paul of Tarsus calls, "More Than Conquerors". For we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ our Lord. Hallelujah! creation reality stuffs. :)
