Bronze mirrors

A comment I heard today prompted this thought. Have you ever wondered about all the strange things you don’t understand in the Bible, and then thought – well, when I get to heaven I’ll just ask God what He meant?

Funny thing is – the Bible is meant to reveal who God is. So when we do get to heaven and see God, we won’t really have any need to ask Him what He meant. Paul sums this up when he says, “Now we see but a poor 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.”

Somewhere in my gut, I think I might start a series on the person of God. The God who made Himself known through Jesus Christ.

Watch this space.

NOTE: We will understand what we knew in part because we can see, but we will not see fully, for the glories of God are infinite riches that we will mine for all of eternity. So we know fully, but we do not see fully. We will spend eternity seeing more and more of God.
