Hope in Being Like Jesus ... One Day (1 John 3:2)

Today’s scripture: 1 John 3:2

Can you imagine?

You will be like Jesus some day!

When you asked Jesus into your heart, you became a child of God’s. And as you grew closer to Him, you became more and more like the person He created you to be, more like Christ.

It would have been enough for us to be saved, to know that we will one day spend eternity with our Lord in heaven, wouldn’t it?

Wouldn’t that be enough?

But God, our loving Father, didn’t stop there. While we’re on earth, we can’t fully see Jesus as He is, but one day we will see Him in all His glory. We will delight in Him and experience the glory of His presence. We will revel in the joy of just being with Him.

But that’s not all.

We will be just like Jesus.

Take a moment to meditate on the thought that you will one day be just like Jesus, that one day, you will see Jesus face-to-face. How does that make you feel?
