1 John 3:2-3
2 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. 3 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.
