“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.” – 1 Cor 13:11-12
Sometimes, it seems as though, even though I have the Word of God, I can’t seem to understand it. Seeing God through his Word sometimes can seem like looking into a foggy mirror. But I don’t think this is God’s fault, but mine. Too many of my own sins, my own desire, taints the message that I’m reading. Or, perhaps, I have not yet matured in an area to grasp the concept. Even though, as I mentioned last week, Jesus has brought light into the world, he lets us grow into it. He transforms us slowly. But, I know that one day I will be united with him and perfected. In the mean time, I try to serve God and grow to spiritual maturity.
