1 John 2:28-29
28 And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. 29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.
God’s children who abide in Him will avoid being ashamed at Christ’s coming. They will face it with confidence. The righteousness of Christ will be reflected in their righteous lifestyles that confirm and demonstrate their new birth. [The Bible Panorama.]
