Staying ready

We are children of God but we are becoming like Jesus. Being children isn’t the end game. Sometimes we think it is. But the end game is not to be children but to become fully mature in God.  

Jesus life is our model. And our hope is that when we see Him, we will become like Him. And for that we have hope and look forward to His coming.

The focus now is staying ready. We should run the race knowing that we will gain the prize. The purity of His life becomes our standard. Are we there yet? No. Do we run to gain the prize? Yes!!!

But friends, that’s exactly who we are: children of God. And that’s only the beginning. Who knows how we’ll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we’ll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own. 1 John 3:2-3
