“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.-1 John 3:2
“Let none imagine that selfishness, self-esteem, and self-indulgence are compatible with the Spirit of Christ. Upon every truly converted man or woman there rests a responsibility that we cannot rightly estimate. The maxims and ways of the world are not to be adopted by the sons and daughters of the heavenly King.
“To have fellowship with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ is to be enobled and elevated, and made a partaker of joys unspeakable and full of glory. Food, clothing, station and wealth may have their value; but to have a connection with God. . . . is of pricessless value. . . . And although it “doth not yet appear what we shall be,” “when Christ, who is our life, shall appear,” “we shall be like him.”
