“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
(1 John 3:1,2)
I can’t help but think of a song Dottie Rambo wrote and sang years ago, “We Shall Behold Him.”
Let these words capture your heart as we ponder the Truth of today’s verse:
“The sky shall unfold, preparing His entrance;
The stars shall applaud Him with thunders of praise,
The sweet light in His eyes shall enhance those awaiting;
And we shall behold Him, then face to face.
“And we shall behold Him, We shall behold Him,
Face to face, in all of His glory.
O we shall behold Him, We shall behold him,
Face to face, our Savior and Lord.
“The angel shall sound the shout of His coming;
The sleeping shall rise from their slumbering place.
And those who remain shall be changed in a moment;
And we shall behold Him, then face to face.”
Dear friend, can you see it? Reach out with your spirit and let the Lord open your eyes to envision this glorious day that is coming. “We know that when He is revealed we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
Unfathomable joy and wonder!!
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!”
Repeat after me…”I am a child of God!” Oh my goodness.
Father, open our eyes that we might see!! Open our hearts to receive your love, to understand how wide and how deep and how high your love is! WE are your children, Lord…help us to know how marvelous is Your love. We await Your coming with ready hearts. Praise You, Father!
