1 John 3:2-3

Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

I read these words again today, awakening in me afresh an ache for a home not yet seen…

but no less real.

It’s been a constant theme in my life, the battle that wages between two worlds, that I should live and exist here, yet all the while belong to another kingdom.

That was the theme of a post I wrote some time ago, A Tale of Two Cities.

May it awake a yearning for home that drives you to live truly present now, pointing to a heavenly city that will never fade away.
