We will be like Jesus
Have you ever noticed that your praying tapers off when you have a guilty conscience? Guilt makes us slink away from God’s presence instead of running to meet him. That’s why the gospel of Jesus’ forgiveness is so thrilling to our hearts and so necessary to hear on a daily basis to sustain our faith-relationship with the Father. Through God’s grace we are washed clean each day; through God’s grace we find joy in our relationship with him all over again.
One of the greatest things about life in heaven someday is that we will be pure and sinless forever. Never again will we hurt or disappoint our heavenly Father. Never again will we feel shame and guilt.
The Bible says in 1 John 3:2, “What we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when [Jesus]appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” You know what? I can’t wait to be like Jesus. I am thrilled that my physical body will be restored from all its damage and imperfections. I am even more excited that my heart and soul and mind will be as pure as Jesus’ also.
In heaven I will never hurt anybody again. In heaven I will never hurt my God again.
