A Taste of Glory

Awesome sunrise with clouds that emit lightEver been to a yogurt shop and get one of those small taster cups to sample the different flavors? If it’s really good, doesn’t it make you look forward to that full cup? I know this is a weak comparison but I think God gives us that same experience with Him. A little taste of the glory of heaven, a sampling of what is to come, to build in an excitement and anticipation.

It just happened to me.

I was sitting at my desk thinking about how blessed I am. Not because of anything this world can give me or has given me. I feel so blessed simply because I know Jesus Christ! Suddenly, my heart was bursting with an overwhelming joy that filled my eyes with tears and my heart with grateful worship. What was happening? My Father was giving me a little taste of glory, just a sampling of what was to come. It was awesome and it made me think, if this is just a sample, what is it going to be like when I experience the fullness of Him.

1 Co 13:12 (ESV) 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.

If the dim mirror is so glorious, what will full sight be like? If knowing Him in part is so amazing what will knowing Him fully be like? If a mere taste is so overwhelming what will the full experience do to us! What a future awaits all who are His.
