Our lives are now hidden with Christ in God and when he appears we shall appear with him in glory. For God’s intention is to bring many sons and daughters to glory in Jesus. As he appears before his Father, he is not ashamed to call us brothers and sisters for he is deeply one with us. In his Father’s presence he gladly declares, “Behold, I and the children God has given me”
Here and now we are called to live our daily lives with this ultimate purpose in view. That requires a REVOLUTION in the way we see. Little adjustments won’t do. We have made ourselves the centre of the universe with all things orbiting around us and for us. So we tend to see all things from a centre in ourselves. We are to rather see from a centre in God so that with the Father we see what he intends for his Son and us in him.
This revolution can only take place through REVELATION by the Spirit. For only the Spirit can unveil Jesus to the eyes of our hearts enabling us to see as God wants us to see. So, with Paul, we must keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we may know him better. Knowing him better we know ourselves better. And we live and move in the sure expectation of our ultimate destiny that is inseparable from him.
