Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12).
All our questions answered…wonderful
All our secrets revealed…terrifying
Beloved, this is yet another one of those spiritual temperature checks. How does your gut respond to this verse? Sure, we all get pumped up over the first part. Who doesn’t want to understand the mysteries of the universe and see God without the veil of church and metaphor?
But the second bit, that part about being fully known…
How does that hit you?
Of course God already knows us completely. Nothing is hidden from His eyes. Still, in our flesh we pretend, don’t we? We imagine that there is some secret nook within our souls that is known to no one but us. But when the day of glory comes all such pretending will be swept away, and we will be bare before Him.
So…does your heart leap at the thought?
Just a little something to consider as you move through your day.
Happy Monday, Beloved
