For our citizenship (commonwealth) is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform (our lowly body) the body of our humble state into conformity with (His glorious body) the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself. Philippians 3:20-21 NASB
I praise You, Lord Jesus Christ, Savior, who has the power to transform my lowly body into conformity with Your glorious body. I surrender to Your yoke of power over me. Thank You for opening the door of opportunity to partake in Your household, no longer a stranger or alien, but a fellow citizen with the saints. God, I pray for Your church, that we will conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, striving together for the faith of the gospel. Father God, I will keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at Your right hand, because I have been raised up with Christ who died for me. For just as I have borne the image of the earthy, I will also bear the image of the heavenly, for I know Your word says, “that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable”. But God You also promised that in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. Hallelujah to the King! For You I eagerly wait Lord Jesus. Amen. Ephesians 2:19/Philippians 1:27/Colossians 3:1/1 Corinthians 15:49-50/1 Corinthians 15:52-53 NASB
🌹When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Colossians 3:4 NASB
To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. Titus 1:15 NASB
Perspective. Where is your focus? I can look at the world and be discouraged OR I can look to God and see He has a plan. I can look to myself and be defiled by my sinful nature OR I can look to God who renews my mind and spirit. It’s all about God.
🌹And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 NASB) that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Ephesians 4:22-24 NASB
And do not be conformed to thisworld, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. — Romans 12:2
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, — 1 Peter 1:14
so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. — 1 Peter 1:2
Conformity to the world or conformity to God?
The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.Be hospitable to one another without complaint.As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. — 1 Peter 4:7-11
