Lent devotions 2011: Wednesday 13 April

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.Romans 8:18

We are hindered, we get pecked, we are ridiculed, we suffer. But God said through Paul that all of the above will not even compare to the day that God will reveal in us. That is when God will show that love is complete in us. That is God’s glory. His unconditional love. Because “what we see in part now, we shall see [comprehend] fully, what we see as a reflection, we shall see face to face.” (1 Corinthians 13 ).

So be encouraged – what we see now, in part, of God’s unconditional love, we will see fully, we will understand fully, we will undertake fully. We will be taken up into Love Himself.

Thank You Lord for Your love through our sufferings and for letting us know the best is yet to come. Amen.
