Our perspective on life changes when we realize that we are the children of God (v. 2). Like children, we constantly are developing. Growing. Changing. Like children, we are not in a final state but are constantly learning through a variety of experiences.

In this process, we will sometimes make mistakes and do the wrong thing. Like a good father, God does not give up on us when we make mistakes. He knows our nature, and He wants us to learn from our experiences.

As our Father, God looks at us with love, seeking ways to protect us, to guide us, and to shape our development. We should not be surprised when He disciplines us and helps us recognize areas where we need correction or improvement.

Our ultimate nature will not be clear until we are present with Him. Then we will be like Him (v. 2). Until then, we will continue to change.

Always remember that it has not appeared as yet what we will be. You are not in your final form. In fact, you can’t even imagine what you will be. That is something only God knows.

God is shaping you. He is constantly teaching you and helping you mature and become more like Jesus. He is helping you impact more lives.

Make sure you cooperate. Trust Him and obey His Word. Surrender your life anew to Him, because He is your loving Father.
