And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure (1 John 3:3).
My hope is in spending eternity with Jesus Christ first as my Savior, second as my Lord and third in the closest relationship available, this hope the Bible speaks of is being His bride—husband and wife. But this marriage isn’t at all carnal because there is neither male nor female in heaven. Spiritual union obliterates separatism, and the two become one. Whether man or woman, our hope is in this eternal union and whether male or female we will become the bride of Christ. Today I am also God’s son, even though I occupy a female body, so you, mister, can also be the Lord’s bride, even though you occupy a male body. The issue here has nothing to do with orientation, or ego, or personality, or physical position. The issue is purity.
I know a young couple who lived together for several years, but the minute they were born again they both knew they could no longer share a bedroom until they married. They wanted to purify themselves and so they put a board down the middle of the bed until their nuptials could be said. There’s just something about knowing Jesus that makes all of us want to be a better person.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
