Then You Also Will Be Revealed

Then You Also Will Be Revealed

The world has so many mixed up ideas  about Christians  and their Lord Jesus Christ.      They conjure up  derogatory images  of judgmentalism,  goodie-two-shoes,  self-righteous joy killers,  religious kooks,  delusional pie-in-the-sky dreamers,  etc., etc.      Their accusations  are far from reality.

When Paul described the details  of a true Christian life,  he made a long list  of the changes made  in a person’s life  when they put their faith  in Christ Jesus.      They change from hatefulness  to lovingkindness — from immorality  to morality — from slander  to truthfulness — from greediness  to sharing — from anger  to patience — from feistiness  to peacefulness,  thankfulness,  and joyfulness.

These are huge changes  in which a person learns  to love  because they have come  to fully realize  how beloved they are  in God’s eyes.      Instead of being proud,  arrogant,  and boastful,  they humbly rest  in God’s love.      They fully realize  they will remain sinners  all while living  on this earth.      So,  they strive to live  in a way  that emulates  the love God has shown them.

Some day,  they know  they will no longer  have to deal with  all the wranglings  of sin.      Things will be  totally different  in heaven.      As Christians  look forward  to that day,  their hopes strengthen them  to live in God’s truths,  in spite of  the world’s mockings  and snide remarks.      Then,  it will be  as Paul wrote  in Colossians 3:4,

When Christ,  who is our life,  is revealed,  then you also  will be revealed  with Him  in glory.

Some day  Christ will come  in all His power  and glory  as LORD and God  over all.      Then  absolutely everyone  who has ever lived  will see Him,  and be forced  to realize  His eternal authority  over all things.      And absolutely every single  child of God  will also be revealed — not as the sinners  they once were — but as the glorified,  forgiven,  purified,  and holy  children of God.

And so,  we are not ashamed  to claim Christ  as our Lord and Savior.      We are ever so glad  He has made  huge changes  in our lives.

In gladness,  we say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord Jesus,  You do all things well  to perfection.      Thank You  for humbly coming down  to this earth  in the Christ Child,  so that  we might be saved  from the dregs  of our sins.”
