8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages [a] and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! 9 Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! 10 But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.
11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. [b] All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
Notes: God gave us spiritual gifts to strengthen the church (the body of believers) here on earth. In eternity, we will be complete and in the presence of God, no longer needed our spiritual gifts. This is when "they will come to end".
1cor13:12 Paul speaks of the day we see God face to face! Though the Lord continues to mold us to be more and more like him each day, we will never be complete until the day we join him in heaven.
"FAITH in Christ" in the foundation, the solid ground we build on... and "HOPE" is the attitude/focus we need to have...
We must have faith and hope in order to be able to LOVE!! So put your faith and hope in JESUS!! And he will show you how to LOVE which is the greatest of all commandments!
Prayer- Jesus, my love, thank you for the overwhelming love you have shown me!! Though, I don't deserve all you do in my life, I promise to do all I can to try and repay you! Your blessings are endless; thank you for arranging things so perfectly for me! My faith and hope remain in YOU; I trust you to do the rest. Let me not get in your way, giving you room to be who YOU ARE... My Lord, My Savior, My Healer, My KING!! Until tomorrow, Muah!
