The longer I live, the more I long to be as Christ.

Not just with my thoughts and values, but also with my form of being.

The fact that aches and pains will be increasing as my age increases is not joy-producing.

Yet, the promise that a time is coming when aches and pains will end is absolutely joy-producing.

When Jesus comes back, I’m going to have a glorified, resurrected body that I can’t describe in detail now because I don’t know just what it’s going to be like.

I’m also going to have a sinless, painless, frustration-less life of glory, just like Jesus has now as He’s awaiting His Father’s word to “Go!”

“But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure.” (I John 3:2-3) .

Because of my future hope in Christ, I’m to do all that I can to protect my spiritual integrity. As I purify myself from tripping over worldly traps, I imitate His purity and reinforce my hope.

Live like Jesus did.

Love like Jesus did.

Look forward to heaven like Jesus did.

Someday, you’ll be lifted to heaven, just like Jesus was.

This is my hope, too.

As always, I love you
