2 Oh, dear children of mine (forgive the affection of an old man!), have you realized it? Here and now we are God’s children. We don’t know what we shall become in the future. We only know that, if reality were to break through, we should reflect his likeness, for we should see him as he really is!
3 Everyone who has at heart a hope like that keeps himself pure, for he knows how pure Christ is. J.B. Phillips New Testament
