into His destiny

 "The children who refuse to dance or mourn* represent souls that are anesthetized by self-absorption and doubt. The Son of Man, because of his great love, experienced both exquisite joy and profound sorrow. He invites us into his destiny. Thus, we share in his cross with the assurance that, if we do, our 'name will never be cut off or blotted out from his presence.' Believing this is true wisdom."

* from Matthew 11:16-19

We await a savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our mortal bodies, to conform with his glorified body. 

- Phil. 3:20-21
