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
Paul shared this insight: “Now we see but a poor reflection; 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). One day we will see Jesus, and all that we have suffered and enjoyed will pale in comparison to the truth and reality of His presence.
Often the reason we don’t maximize the life we have is that we don’t really know the One who gives life. We may have an idea or mental image of God, but the reality of His presence is not something we incorporate into our lives on a daily basis.
If we did, we would stop trying to solve our problems, and we would give Him the burdens of our hearts. We would not emphasize acquiring material possessions but truth Him to meet all our needs. We would be more interested in abiding in Him and allowing His presence to be evident through our actions.
Living with an eternal perspective begins by asking Jesus to saturate every area of your life with Himself. You don’t have to wait until eternity to experience the intimate fellowship of God. Open your life up to Him fully and completely, and He will give you a blessed taste of eternity now.
Dear Lord, please saturate every area of my life with Yourself. I don’t want to wait until eternity to experience intimate fellowship with You. I am ready for a divine encounter!
