1 Corinthians 13:10
But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
Love Feast day #11
Hello my friend, you are a winner! Your diligence and steadfast love for the Father is admirable. You are growing and abounding in Love which most certainly makes the Father smile. Love is working in you now. Love is working for you now. Praise God your love life is taking you places! You will never be the same again. Get ready my friend to experience great heights in faith because faith works by the love of God. Faith pleases God and God’s love never fails……. woo, woo……… how good is that my friend!
Today our love feast scripture continues to enlighten us on the perfect versus the imperfect or partial. It is God's will that we some day reach perfection.
"...that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God." Colossians 4:12
But this is a process not an overnight success. We must be disciplined to continue on the road God has us on until we reach our journeys end. Remember, Job 8:7, "Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase."
From today's verse of scripture we do learn that there will be things that will be done away with, meaning we will not need them anymore. However, we will continue to need them until that day. This scripture is not meant for us to begin to devalue the things that will be done away with but to understand their place in the whole scheme of things. Just because it is only in part right now doesn’t mean it is not valuable, it is only necessary for a time and a season. We must learn to thank God for things that are only seasonal. Seasons change but the word of God remains the same. If something is just for a season of life then we have to appreciate the time we had it and then move on to what’s next. God has the full plan and we must trust His wisdom and guidance to do whatever He wants to do. Jesus said, not my will but thy will be done, why, because He totally trusted the Father. He was not afraid to let God’s will be done. He knew that whatever the Father wanted to do it would be good no matter what it looked like at the onset. There are certain details about the plan of God for our own lives that we may not know at certain times but just know that God will reveal to us what we need to know when we need to know it, Hallelujah! God’s plan is perfect and we can rest assure that He will not fail. However, not only is God's plan perfect but He also wants to make you perfect or complete in that plan. Listen to Hebrews 13:21:
Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Let us have an expectation for perfection in our lives, why, because that's the will of God for you and me!
The word perfection generally denotes maturity. It is a measuring tool to help us have a goal or a destination to reach. God wants us to grow and grow and grow. Proper spiritual growth and development will only occur when the main ingredient is love, otherwise, there is spiritual retardation or handicaps. God's will is that we be made perfect and complete.
So as the seasons of your life change remember, love remains the same.
