Good news!

Did you ever worry that you'll get to Heaven and still be your obnoxious, or at least, rebellious self? I have! So, I love this:

"but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away."

"in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed."

"Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is."

I don't think the first verse above refers to the completed Bible, I think it refers to the Second Coming. Then, we will be like Jesus--perfect! Yes! 

Meanwhile, we have and need all the Holy Spirit's ministry and power to live in victory in this world.  We need all the help we can get--I sure do!--and we are promised it right here: 
"So that you are not lacking in any gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God is faithful...."

 I Corinthians 1:7-8

    Until that which is perfect is come! 

Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
