1 John 3:1-3
…The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
A little while ago I got to see one of my musical heroes in concert, and got to stand almost at the front. I was buzzing with excitement ahead of the gig, and to be honest I still am. But as much as that was exciting, take on board this news – one day we will get to me Jesus face to face! How astonishing will that be. But wait, there’s more. in some way, that face to face meeting will change our lives. Some how, that act of seeing Jesus as he is will transform us so that we become like him. But let’s not wait until then, a bit like fans at a concert wearing their tour t-shirts, let’s get prepared and do what we can now to become more like him.
Holy Spirit, purify me and help me live a more Jesus-like life today.
