[The Glory Unveiled]
Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure. (1John 3:3 )
There is an awakening of a spiritual hope in us when we learn in an inward way that we shall be like Christ when He appears. There is a hope that impresses upon us a need to purify ourselves with the word of God. Because as He is, so are we [to be] in this world. He is the word of God personified so we must be the word of God personified. If there is anyone in our vicinity who cannot read the word of God for themselves, they should be able to see our lifestyle and see the life of Christ. They should hear us speak and hear the clear voice of Christ. We must purify ourselves with the word of God such that, we cannot be differentiated from the person of Christ. What will draw us to Christ at His appearing is our resemblance of Him–it is our bridal garment of His nature. As long as we remain in the earth, by all means, as long as it depends on us, we must purify ourselves with the pure word of God even as Christ washes the Church by the word. Let the world see a refined you that is in the same nature as Christ. Keep the hope of being like Christ in you.
Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, purify me with your word and keep my hope of being one with you alive. Teach me in an inward way to resemble you.
