Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be,
but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
(1 John 3:2)
There is therefore surely some blissful vision reserved for us;
and if it can be now in some measure conceived “in a mirror, dimly” (1 Cor 13:12),
yet we cannot in any way express in language the ravishing beauty of that bliss,
which God reserves for them that fear Him,
which He consummates in those that hope in Him.
It is for that destination that our hearts are being disciplined in all the troubles and trials of this life.
St. Augustine, Commentary on the Psalm 37
