I am going to a Chicago Cubs baseball game tonight. Watching baseball live is a very different experience from listening to a game on the radio, viewing it on the MLB app or seeing it on television. At the stadium, I can more readily witness the talent and prowess of the players. A camera lens or announcer’s perspective cannot adequately describe the abilities of the players.
The experience of seeing the Cubs live reminds me that a day is coming when I will be in the fullness of the living Christ. Right now, I hear Him speak to me in the Scriptures through the Spirit, who shows me His movements in the church throughout the world. But there are times in this life when difficulties, sin and chaos obstruct my view of His movements among us.
However, on that glorious day when He returns, nothing will impede our view of the risen, almighty Lord. Being in the fullness of Christ will be a totally different experience, one that my imagination cannot even adequately describe. As Paul said, “Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known” (1 Corinthians 13:12).
On the day of Christ’s return, we will know Christ as He knows us. We will see Christ in all His glory, and He will share His glory with us. And all Christ’s attributes—compassion, mercy, kindness, peace, and love—will fill our being.
