“But our citizenship is in heaven, and we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lovely bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.” Philippians 3:20-21. We praise God that John is delighting in God’s presence.
