1 John 3:3

1 John 3:3…”All who have put this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure.” The hope referenced here is the glorious truth that one day we’ll be with Christ forever in heaven. We will be glorified, meaning that these sinful, temporary vessels in which our spirits currently exist will be gone. We will be made like Jesus and finally be able to reciprocate His perfect love toward us forever. He is our only hope, which should motivate us to purify ourselves in this life. All who have this hope will purify themselves, implying that those who do not grow in holiness are not in Him.
