Behold What Manner of Love


By
John Foll, 10/29/2016

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. 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. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure. 1 John 3:1-3 KJV.
It is such an amazing thing that God would not only want to save us, but would want to make us one of His sons or daughters! We will never deserve the honor and blessings that God wants to lavish on us, but they are ours, if we will only claim them, and let Him qualify us. God not only wants to forgive us, but He wants to purify us, to make us like His Son Jesus! Yes, He has bestowed on us the honor to be His son or daughter! But all who would be His son or daughter must let Him purify them, even as He is pure. Is this your hope, to be the son or daughter of God? Then let the Holy Spirit fill you, and change you to be like Him, so that when Jesus the Son of God appears in the clouds with great glory, you will see Him as He is, because you adore Him, and not shrink back in fear. Matthew 24:29-31; 26:64. Hebrews 10:39.
Therefore let us get to know Him, and see Him as He appears. Let us keep His word (John 14:23), become His disciple (John 13:35; 15:8; Isaiah 50:4), and see the King in His beauty. Isaiah 33:17. Let us ask Him for help to take the remaining world out of us and purify us to be like Him, so that we can become His son or daughter.

Amen!
