That which is perfect

When that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be 
done away.” – I Corinthians 13:10
When the “Perfect Man” comes, only then shall we see Him as He is and be 
made like Him. In the meantime, our faith is mixed with unbelief. Our 
love is mixed with selfishness. Our understanding is mixed with 
ignorance. Our sorrow for sin is shallow. Our worship falls so far short 
of its mark. Our experience of peace is fraught with fear. Our joy is 
mixed with sorrow. Truly, “Now we see through a glass darkly…”
Here is our hope brethren… Faith does not look to our experience in 
these graces for the hope of our salvation. Oh no! Faith looks to that 
Perfect Man in whom all these spiritual graces are full and complete. 
May we rest the hope of our salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ who 
stands in our stead before Almighty God. “Wherefore, He is able to save 
them to the uttermost (perfectly) that come unto God by Him, seeing He 
ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25). – Greg Elmquist
