Now and Then
A Sermon on 1 Corinthians 13:9-13
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (ESV)
Man's vision of the future; the Christian view of the future; the Christian understands times of trouble; to see Him face to face; the Christian hope.
