August 8

“For now we see only a 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 (NIV)

As we live by faith here on this earth, we are looking forward to greater things in heaven. That’s what the apostle Paul had in mind as he wrote these words. We do thank God for what He has revealed to us about His eternal glory and what we are going to experience in His presence. For what we experience now although it is wonderful, it is only a part of what is promised to us. We must remember that when we are there the glory will be far beyond anything we can imagine. In the days that Paul lived there were no mirrors like we have today. The mirrors were polished brass or silver and the reflections were not clear as we are used to.  What we see here is like a poor reflection in a cheap or defective mirror, or like a blurred picture. There we will see the real thing!
