God is Cool

5.04.2011

I love when I come across a verse of scripture that I've read many times before and God shows me something that stops me in my tracks...

For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when Completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
--1 Corinthians 13:9-10
One commentary says this:
"In this life, our knowledge of God can never be complete. One day, we will no longer need anything that is not complete. That will happen in eternity when Christ comes again."
  
It's almost humorous to think of how little we know and how much we think we know.  And in verse 12 Paul reminds us once more:
 
...now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 
 
God has known us completely our whole lives, while we have only known Him part because we cannot fully comprehend Him in this life. But when we join Him for eternity, we will see God as He is. That is just mind baffling to me, but unbelievably exciting.
