We Shall Be Like Him

“We shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” 1 John 3:2.

 Who can fully tell of all the Redeemer’s glory in heaven?  Or, were it fully revealed, what power to grasp, what faculties to comprehend, what eye to behold, and what tongue to describe so lofty a theme and so sublime a spectacle as this?  But we shall behold it!  We, too, shall be glorified. The mind shall be adjusted to the mightiness of the theme, and the eye shall be strengthened for the dazzling magnificence of the spectacle.  With every physical and mental and moral faculty perfectly developed and sanctified, we shall be a glorified Church, placed in the presence, and contemplating through eternity the glory, of a glorified Head.  We shall behold the Redeemer’s glory. “Shall I see the King in His beauty? What! my eye behold His glory?” Yes! if you see beauty in Jesus now, if your eye beholds glory in Immanuel, feeble and dim though the view may be, so surely shall you be with Him where He is, and shall contemplate the ceaseless unfoldings of His unclouded glory, and that through all eternity. __Octavius Winslow

Psa 108:4  For your steadfast love is great above the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
