Day 5: New Bodies

Philippians 3:20-21

20But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

Reflection: God’s plan for humankind on earth is not over yet. Jesus’ power on earth did not end when He ascended into heaven.  Jesus now sits at the right hand of God and one day, He will return.  And when He returns, the power which He has to bring everything under His control will be the power that takes our weak and mortal bodies and changes them to be like His new and glorious body.

Responding to the Transmitted Message: Today are we eagerly awaiting our Savior’s return?  Or are we getting overwhelmed by the daily grind of life?  Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus today.  Pray that God will help you see His great plan for His people on earth.  Pray that God will fill you with the hope of His return.  Be encouraged that even now, we are citizens of heaven living here on earth.
