During this season of forced and mutual deprivation, when our consolations are taken from us one by one and we are continually and graphically reminded of the mortality of our species, I turn to the men I support for wisdom and guidance. …
“Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.“ (1 John 3:2, NLT)
God has, from eternity, had our future on His mind. There is a transformation ahead of us where this future will be revealed to others and to ourselves: who we really are. What we see and know in the present is not the full story, but only the beginning.
Father, may we not seek to mold others into our image. We pray that we would hold this image we have of ourselves up to Light of Christ, so that we may begin our transformation into your likeness here and now.
