Main point summary
Every child of God seeks to be pure because we want to be like our Father.
1 John 3:1-3
See y what kind of love the Father has given to us,
that we should be called z children of God;
and so we are.
The reason why a the world does not know us is
that b it did not know him.
Beloved, we are z God’s children c now,
and what we will be d has not yet appeared;
but we know
that e when he appears 1
f we shall be like him,
because g we shall see him as he is.
And everyone who h thus hopes in him i purifies himself
as he is pure.
How incredible that God loves us so much that He would call us His children! It is only natural that our loving response would be a burning desire to be just like our Father. Oh, may the Holy Spirit sanctify us and make us like our Lord Jesus! Amen! A comment on verse 2f: I recently listened to a lecture by Chuck Missler. He made an interesting hypothesis that our glorified bodies will consist of more than three dimensions. He says this because of the fact that Jesus, in His glorified body, could pass through walls. If this hypothesis is correct then it makes sense that we cannot see Him as He is until we have our glorified bodies: a two-dimensional being could not see a three-dimensional being. Similarly, a three-dimensional being could not see a being of more than three dimensions. So, until we have our glorified bodies that are like Jesus' body, we cannot see Him as He is. I thought this was a very interesting hypothesis!
