“Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly. Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable” (1 Corinthians 15:49-50).
Do you see what is being said? We are physical bi-pedal creatures. We are being made into heavenly creatures through the grace of God. It is not one or the other, but both. What we will be we do not know, but this we do know, that we will be like Christ. Therefore, focus upon what the Lord is doing in You knowing that He is making something new of You for the age to come.
Lord, I so focus upon this world that I am unable to see beyond what is in front of me. Lead me, O Lord, to see through this that I may live into the life for which You are making me new. Let me see the beauty of both and see that You, who are the author and finisher of my faith, leads me into all godliness. Guide me, O Lord, according to Your grace and mercy that I would become what is pleasing to You.
Lord Jesus, You have always known what You are doing amidst a world that has no clue what is really going on. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would walk humbly wherever You lead me. Help me to see that only in You is there hope and a future. Guide me According to Your goodness to see through the pitfalls of this world that I may become like You. Amen.
