After my last post, I thought this would be a more upbeat entry! It has been a very long time since I have posted a new entry in this series, and this seemed a good time. (Earlier entries are listed below.)
Here is a verse that is simply too wonderful for me (cf. Psalm 139:6):
“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12
Knowing how thoroughly God knows me (Psalm 139), the idea that “I shall know just as I also am known” is almost terrifyingly wonderful. How many of us, since childhood, have had question after question after question about the world around us? I know I have. And the reflection that one day, on the other side of that veil–the time pictured in this verse by the single word “then”–all of those answers will be known is just amazing. No more best guesses, no more faulty theories treated as facts, no more uncertainties… It’s all just about too much to take in.
What will you be excited to finally know then?
