For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things, as when we stare into polished metal. I realize that everything I know is only part of the big picture. But one day, when Jesus arrives, we will see clearly, face-to-face. In that day, I will fully know just as I have been wholly known by God. – 1 Corinthians 13:12

Till Jesus gets back we will not fully know why He asked us to love one another relentlessly. Why receiving His Love was so important! Why it had to overflow!

Till such a time as this arrives, we are to love not just people who love us back; but the Ones who may never. When God says “forgive”, we wouldn’t be able to understand. When He says, “go the extra mile” it would be clueless to what lies ahead. When God says, “trust” it may never make sense. But, there are parts of the Big Picture. Unless these are enacted, we may never be able to be see His Glory ahead.

  1. I think the key here is that we are to be an example of Christ to others. So we should love others and interact with others in the same way Christ would have. It’s such a great reminder to look at the big picture. That we can only see fragments of the great plan that the Lord has. Great bite of wosdom.

  2. This was beautiful and such a great reminder! Forgiveness for me oftentimes isn’t a one time thing, but a daily thing when I am really struggling with someone and something. Reminds me how we are to pick up our cross daily and love even though it hurts x

  3. If we don’t look at the big picture of God and His infinite love and wisdom it becomes too easy to start doing our own thing. By faith we have to love and forgive as He does and as He desires for us.


  4. I can’t wait to see the great big picture! The whole puzzle of life and what’s happened will be revealed. I will drop to my knees and praise God for how my life was woven together!


  5. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. The immersing, incredible Love that chose to die for each one of us lives in us, in our very being. His overflow is more than we can ever hope to comprehend. Thank you for sharing your thoughts – be blessed this week!
