1 John 3:2 (NIV) Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.
When you believe in Jesus and embrace Him as your Lord and Savior, you become a cherished child of God. In God’s family, Jesus holds the place of honor as the firstborn (see Romans 8:29). Whatever He has gone through, we too will experience. This is God’s design for His church. Through our union with Christ, we’ve been crucified with Him and raised to new life in the Spirit. God’s grace empowers us to daily overcome our sinful nature and live in the Spirit. Just as Jesus rose with a glorified body, we too, when we believe in Him, will rise with glorified bodies during the rapture (see 1 Corinthians 15:52).
Although we can’t fully grasp what we’ll be like after our resurrection, we know one thing for sure: we’ll be like the Lord. The splendor that will be revealed in us is beyond our human understanding, but through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we trust that we’ll share in Christ’s glory.
As you step into today, keep in mind that the rapture could occur at any moment. Just as Jesus lived on earth to fulfill His divine purpose, you too are called, with the Holy Spirit’s assistance, to live out your unique purpose. The Holy Spirit’s presence in your life is your assurance of being part of the rapture (see Ephesians 1:13-14, 2 Corinthians 1:22).
Prayer: Gracious Father, I’m grateful for Your grace that chose me for salvation. I pray for the strength to consistently walk in a manner worthy of my calling in You. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
