“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Have you ever felt pulled in two directions, wanting to be in two places at one time? Apostle John writes about this struggle we deal with as Christ followers, wanting so much to be in heaven in the presence of God but knowing there is work yet to be done here. We are still becoming, caught up between the now and the not yet.

“This life is not in godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming. We are not now but we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal but it is the right road. At present everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed.“

—-Martin Luther, German theologian and leader of the Protestant reformation🚦
