1st John 3:1-2

1 John 3:1-2 “ How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

You’ve probably heard about couples that have lived together so long they almost start to look like one another. Some of the resemblance I think comes in actions and mannerisms they pick up from each other.

As we live daily with Christ we will become more and more like Him. He is the example of what we were designed to be and when Christ comes back to rule a new and perfect world we will be the way we were designed to be. It was God’s intention and it is our destiny.

Matthew 5:8 says, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” When we stand before Jesus and see Him we will finally be pure.

John says all Christians are children of God. It’s not that we will be when we get to heaven, we already are, right this minute. This life is the beginning once we are saved.
