John, the Beloved, tells us we are loved of God. When Christ shall come, we shall be like Him. What greater gift of love could He give us?
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons [and daughters] of God. . . . Beloved, now are we the sons [and daughters] of God, . . . we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:1 - 2
