It Doth Not Yet Appear What We Shall Be
Our text today is from 1st John 3:2. 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.
Just like a sunrise in all of its glory after a long night, one day we will have a glorified body just like Jesus Christ. What a day that will be! Right now it just isn’t real to us what we will be like and it is hard to imagine that one day we will have a new body that will not be subject to the laws of sin and nature. Since all we know about is our present body, it is hard to grasp the concept of a new body. No pain, no sickness, no death. Right now we are subject to all these things and it just doesn’t seem possible that one day we will be changed, but we will!
To others, we seem to be just like them in every way but when Jesus comes back all that will change. We are a son of God right now and that alone is hard for us to grasp but wait for the day when our sonship is revealed for what it really is.
We haven’t seen anything yet!
Praise God for the promise that one day we will be different.
May that day be soon! Even so, Come, Lord Jesus!
