The Now and The Not Yet

When I read this verse this morning, it filled me with hope for the future.

Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
1 John 3:2

The ESV Study Bible note on this verse states:
What we will be means having glorified bodies that will never be sick or grow old or die, and being completely without sin. No one like that has yet appeared on earth (except Christ himself after his resurrection).

I am pressing on today because as God's child, the best is yet to come!
