Hope in Us


“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not been made known.


 But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
 Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.’
1 John 3:2-3 (NIV)

“ . . now we are children of God. . .” We become God’s spiritual children when we ask Him into our hearts. We give Him full reign over every part of our lives.
“. . . what we will be has not been made known.” God makes us into the person He wants us to be. The transformation of our attitudes, our minds, and our hearts is in His hands.
“But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him. . .” As we await Jesus’ return to earth, we who follow His teaching become more like Him. He makes us into His image. We grow closer to Him. We adopt His attitude, taking all our needs before Him.
“. . . for we shall see him as he is.” We shall see God. We shall know Him.
“Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself. . .” When we have Jesus in our hearts, we allow ourselves to be purified by our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ. We yield ourselves to Him.
“. . . just as he is pure.” When god calls us home, our transition is complete. Our souls longer mimic the world but reflect God.

  2. Thank you, Rhonda, for your very kind words.I fell in love with the graphic. I reminds me of a song I used to hear on TV when I was a child. I believe it was called Faith, Love and Charity" They sang it on the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show.
    {Yes, that tells my age.:)}
