“But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.”

“But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.”
1 Corinthians 13:10

What are your hopes and dreams?
God knows what we will face in advance, if where we stand we feel that we cannot face it, God provides a way for us to face it.

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13

He provided for us with hope, find it in His Word. We are here but for a microcosm of time. So much can be shared on this. In Spirit those who have preceded us exist on.

Abraham was spoken to and is the forerunner of tribes. “Bosom of Abraham” refers to the place of comfort in the Biblical Sheol (or Hades in the Greek Septuagint version of the Hebrew scriptures from around 200 BC, and therefore so described in the New Testament) where the righteous dead await Judgment Day.

The phrase and concept are found in both Judaism and Christian religions and in religious art.

Once on the mountain, Matthew 17:2 states that Jesus “was transfigured before the disciples He chose to go up the mount with Him; His face shining as the sun, and his garments became white as the light.” At that point the prophets Elijah and Moses appear and Jesus begins to talk to them.

Even after a microcosm of time, we, our Spirits, exist on. It is for us now to decide where we will be.

Choose Whom you will serve:
“Now therefore fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the Red Sea and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15

This brings so much to bear. Decisions! We are examples in the way we live. To our household and more!

Paul and Silas were beaten, jailed and chained. Rather than be morose, they took the opportunity to praise God in all things. We have touched on this in the past, where they were, they were meant to be. After being punished severely, an ‘earthquake’ made their doors open, their chains fall off, but yet they stayed there, not running! The jailer was about to commit suicide for fear they had run off. But Paul and Silas stayed his hand. The jailer took them to his house!

“They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.”

Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house.”

Upon being directed to stay his hand, at that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized.

The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household.
Acts 16:30-34

WE are the examples. Play your part! You were chosen for a reason.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” Romans 15:13

The Word motivates us to keep striving. God’s grace is “perfect!” Amazing grace, how sweet the sound!
Makes you think!

When our situations seem hopeless…
“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope…”
Romans 5:3-4

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11

We have hope. Our hope is embraced by faith AND charity. This IS the way to live succesfully.
