Being God's children separates us as true believers from the world that does not know God.  Believers can hardly expect the world to understand their special relationship with God as His children.  We cannot fully understand what will be the full result of being the children of God in the hereafter.  We do know when we die, Christ will be revealed as He really is, and His people will be immediately transformed into His image.  As we look with expectation to coming face to face with the risen Lord where we will share His glory, let us be motivated to rely more upon the Spirit to conduct our lives with purity.
