For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God].
LOVE FEAST day #12.
Today we focus on yet again imperfect knowledge. Remember it is neither God nor His word that are imperfect, it is our understanding. There is nothing imperfect about God. He is perfect and pure. He is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.
We have spoken an extensive degree on this subject over the last few verses so today let us reflect, absorb and do what we have heard. It’s not enough for us to learn and meditate but we must put it to practice. Let us focus on the perfect one which is God. Let us see ourselves complete in Him. In Him we lack nothing because He is our Shepherd; we shall not want or lack anything. The things that God has chosen to reveal to us are precious and sufficient for us. Let us thank Him for our food, our manna, our daily bread. The table of the Lord is loaded with all that we have need of and more.
One day we will see Him face to face. What a glorious day that will be. The scripture tells us in 1 John 3:1-2 (AMP)
SEE WHAT [[a]an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! The reason that the world does not know (recognize, acknowledge) us is that it does not know (recognize, acknowledge) Him.
Beloved, we are [even here and] now God's children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [[b]as God's children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him [c]just as He [really] is.
Don't be discouraged or dwell on the things you don't know but rather thank Him daily for that which has already been revealed through His Son, Christ Jesus.
God’s love is perfect and complete.
