1 John · Exegesis of Light

A glorious reality now true of us in Christ

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.- 1 John 3:2

Now are we the sons of God!
Now are we the children of Light!
Now we carry the seed of Divinity veiled by the flesh. 

Our visible eyes cannot see this hidden verity that our faith has relentlessly laid its grip upon. Our senses war against us on this matter many times…Our framework of perception does not seem to be big enough to grasp the full gamut of this new position…this glorious reality now true of us in Christ…
Let us pause and meditate on this reality: Now are we sons of God!!!

Indeed, “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.” Glory to God! At the sound of the trumpet and the advent of the King we will experience the consummation of our salvation!

Our physical bodies will be transformed and all eyes will be able to see…this is the hope of our salvation! Yes it is true…we do not know how we will look like at the glorification but we do know this…we shall see Him and be like Him because we shall see Him as He is!
