God's word causes us to see ourselves. The glass is like a two way mirror! Walk His Way and forget what manner of man or woman you once were and see the new creation you have become.
We are called to be Christ followers-mirrored reflections of His perfection.
Go your Way and your old self appears in the glass/mirror.
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves.
James 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass.
James 1:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
Studying this scripture I noted a few things. The hearing and doing required effort, due diligence. A steady walk and a continual study of God's word. Relationships are hard to maintain when effort is only put forth occasionally. Spend time with God in fellowship and study of His word.
Even in our everyday life our appearance needs upkeep. Look into the mirror of His word daily.
