comfortable in light and glory
When resurrection occurs it will be as Jesus, uniting body and spirit in its perfect form at the prime of life. All will receive this free gift. At that time, each person will be brought into God’s presence for judgement with a full of remembrance righteousness and guilt. (Jacob 6:8-9) The Savior wants to forgive. The repentent will receive the mercy of Jesus' Atonement and be rewarded according to works and desires. (2 Nephi 9:14-15) This is called eternal life or exaltation, because there is no separation from God or spiritual death ever again. (Alma 42:13-15, 22-23)We live in eternal families there. On that day, I imagine we will partly be our own judges. (Matthew 7:23) Those who've developed a Christlike character, lived according to God's will, and have kept the commandments will feel comfortable in the light and glory of His presence and desire to stay. (John 17:3) (Doctrine and Covenants 45:8) Others will slink away to places of lesser light. (1 Corinthians 15:41-42) I hope to never hear, "I never knew you: depart from me," Matthew 7:23.
