As the song says, to be fully known and fully loved is a gift only God can give. When we are born again, the LORD also adopts us as His sons and His daughters, to be lavished with unconditional love – a love we did not deserve nor need to try to deserve. It is ours by unmerited grace. And as we contemplate that love and grace, especially as embodied in Jesus Christ, we are being transformed into that same image in preparation for that day of completion when we see Him as He is.
1 John 3:1-3
