DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings:13:33 to 14:31; Jer. 24-25; Col:2:8 to 3:4
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does 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
Who of us can fully appreciate the truths that John reveals to us here. To think that one day we shall be like Him is beyond our comprehension. William Alexander tells of an incident when translating these verses. When the native scribe came to the words, “We shall be like Him,” he laid down his pen and exclaimed, “No, it’s too much; let us write, ‘We shall kiss His feet.’” But will it be too much? Is it too much that “sons” shall one day be like Him? “I shall be satisfied, when
I awake, with thy likeness” (Ps:17:15b). —Jim Comte
And is it so—I shall be like Thy Son?
Is this the grace which He for me has won? —John Nelson Darby
