Hang In There, Your Day Is Coming



Your not perfect yet but your day is coming. St. Paul explains this beginning in Romans.

Romans 13: 9
The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not covet," and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Paul, sets the stage for announcing the moment of our perfection in the Romans above by first explaining that love replaces the entire 10 commandments.
He later explains what love is in the famous "Love Chapter", 1 Corinthians 13:
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
This is, of course, is Agape love, God's Love or perfect love. He is essentially reminding us that not only could we keep the "law" perfectly but, if your honest with yourself, you realize you can't perform this "perfect" love either. But, your day is coming as he further explains:
1 Corinthians 13: 8-13
Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Finally Paul explains the day of our perfection. Love is everything for a Christian, it is all and it endures all and the only aspect of our Christian life we take into eternity.
Our love is not perfect yet but, the day is coming when it will be, when we are perfected , face to face ,in the presence of God. Have good cheer and all praise to God, you day is coming!
