How Great is the Love

Today I want to share a passage from I John 3, which is found near the end of the Old Testament.
"How GREAT is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called the children of the Most High God! And that is what are are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
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. Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure".

As a mother, I know the unspeakable joy in having a child - the love I have for each of mine is unconditional and everlasting, yet my minute little brain cannot even wrap around the truth of the boundless love that God Almighty has for those of us who have chosen for him to not be just our Creator, but our Father.
When we cross over to the other side - when we enter Heaven and are greeted by our Savior, it is then that we will finally understand the things that are too great for us while we are here on Earth. It says that we will be like him, and we will see him as he is - WOW, WOW, WOW and WOW!
My resolution for the new year is for my love and worship of our Lord Jesus, to increase and that I will hear him more clearly with each day - that my relationship will reach new heights.
Have a blessed Monday...

The Revelation song is amazing!
