Staying in Eager Expectation

Bible Verse 1st John 3:2-3

Dear friends, we are already God's children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is. And all who have this eager expectation will keep themselves pure, just as he is pure.

Commentary:

As John writes this section of scripture we can make out his eager anticipation to be with Jesus. We see the loving kindness John uses to remind us that as followers of Jesus, exercising genuine saving faith in Christ, we have become dear children of God. And as such we are constantly under-construction as it were by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit does a work of Christ in us, transforming our hearts and minds to the things of God.

As the Holy Spirit continues His transforming work in our hearts, we begin to feel a longing and a hope for the return of Jesus our Lord and Savior. The result of which is we begin to live with the anticipation of Christ's soon return. This in turn causes us to grow and mature spiritually. The fruit of our maturity is seen as changes to our behavior and our outlook on life. Day by day our desire to be in the presence of Christ increases and we develop a thirst for the word of God.

Following God's Will

Luke 22:42-43

And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."

In Faith and Prayer We Face the Enemy

2nd Corinthians 10:3-5

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Wisdom is Found in God's Word

Ephesians 5:15-17

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Transformed by Christ

Romans 12:1-2

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Seek Faith and Humility

Romans 12:3

For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Love Without Hypocrisy

Romans 12:9-12

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.

Overcome Evil With Good

Romans 12:20-21

Therefore If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Be Ready Our Salvation is Near

Romans 13:11-2

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.

Our Glory is in Christ

Romans 8:18

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Our Flesh Constantly Lust

Proverbs 27:19-20

As in water face reflects face, So a man's heart reveals the man. Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied.

God Has Put Eternity in Our Hearts

Ecclesiastes 3:10-13

I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor-it is the gift of God.
