Today’s reading I John 1-5
I John 3:2-3 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
We that are born again are the sons of God. He has great plans for us! He will make us like Him. We will see Him like He really is and then He will make us like Him.
If you are truly born again you want to be like Him. You look for His coming. You hunger to see Him and to be like Him. We want every day to be more like Him.
By the way, we work at it! We don’t just sit passively by waiting on Him to change us but we get into the Word. We allow the Word to work in us! We allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us and show us what He is doing in us!
We hunger for holiness. We hunger to do right. We do not seek to be as worldly as we can be rather we seek to be like the One we love, the One who saved us, and the One who is coming for us!
