As the embassy of God’s love on earth, it is easy to expect the church to be a bright beacon of faith, hope and love in the world. Yet, the reality is often something more complex. As in the drama of ancient Israel, the church is replete with many contradictions mixed in with acts of faith. It is both mature & immature in the use of gifts sometimes seeking its own way, sometimes rejoicing in the truth.
-When is church love patient & kind?
-When is church envious or arrogant?
-When does church insist on its way?
-When does church rejoice in wrongdoing?
-When does church rejoice in truth?
-How can church endure all things?
When Paul says that we see in a mrror, dimly, he may well be referring to the church. He calls the church in Corinth to task for its arrogance and insistence that all its members speak in tongues. Yet Paul is using this situation as a teaching moment. He understands we can only see in part.
