“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with 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).
By what power? By the power that has created all things. And what will He do? Create in us His likeness for the promised eternity. And what is that likeness? A child of God. Do you begin to see what God is up to? Do you begin to understand that the Lord is calling You to be with Him and in Him now and forever. This is what He has been up to since the garden of Eden and you are invited.
Lord, so many around me seem to be focused upon themselves. They are their own god. I too have this problem. Release me from this bondage so that I may live into the life You have called for me to live. Guide me in the way of salvation in order that I would reject the tired untrue way of the world to live what is eternal. Lord, You know all that is needed. Help me through these things to live in You.
Lord Jesus, Savior of the world, You have sent Your Spirit that all who see the light would rejoice in You and You in them. Guide me today, Lord, so that I would walk humbly with You in the light You shine on me. Lead me in Your power in order that I may be transformed by and in You. Through all things, help me to see more clearly each and every day. You are Sovereign and I am Your creation. Amen.
