What will you be when you grow up? We are two days into Vacation Bible School 2021. Did you know that 500 kids signed up this year? Not all of them turned out, but this church has been rocking! What a privilege we have been given to share the love of Jesus with nearly 400 children of our city. What will they become?
In Christ, we are all still growing up. I heard once: Adults are like cement, all mixed up and set for life. Not so in Christ. You and I are just getting started growing into what God intends for us.
John reminded his church of that in our passage for this Sunday: "Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is" (1 John 3:2). Now we are children. How old are you? Thirty? Forty? Eighty? Ninety? Now you are children. What will you be when you grow up?
We don't fully know. But I can say this. The love of God is shaping you. Every moment the love of God is altering you. Every second the love of God is growing you up, more and more, day by day, into a likeness-your personal likeness-to God's own Son, Jesus Christ. What Great Love!
