NOW WE KNOW ONLY IN PART

Awiambnam{Xw \mw Adnbpp

By REV. DR. VALSAN THAMPU

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. We should come out to search instead of secluding our self to this small part. While we search for big things it reflects as the act of love. Jesus taught us that if we believe we will see much bigger.
