“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.” 1 Corinthians 13:12
I love the symbolism in mirrors. They represent the tension in the relationship between myself and me. One tension being that I honestly hate mirrors. They constantly remind me of who I am on the outside. But mirrors are really good liars. What I see when I look in a mirror is never who I truly am. Mirrors only show us what is on the surface. They cannot show us the person who lives inside of us, and by the grace of God that person is Christ. But every time I look in a mirror I can only see in part and not in full the act of redemption He is doing in my life. But one day I will see. I will see face to face not only my true self, the person Jesus says that I am, but I will also meet Him who knows me first by what is inside of me. The face of glory. Now A Dim Mirror is a Blog devoted to reflecting on the Perfect One. Hopefully, it too can become a dim mirror reflecting the face of Jesus.
