Scripture:  Philippians (NIV) 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, 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.

Observation:    At this time in my life, I, and the Holy Spirit, are working on transforming my inner life to be like Jesus.   At this time my physical body is very lacking in many ways.   It is weak.   It easily gets tired.   It needs constant attention.   But the above verse speaks of my physical body being transformed to be like Jesus' resurrected body.

Application:   When the time comes for my physical body to be transformed to be like Jesus resurrected body, I want my inner man to be ready for such a transformation.   The Holy Spirit is now working in me to develop attitudes like Jesus.   With a heart holy and full of love like Jesus, may I be ready for a body like Jesus!

Prayer:      Holy Spirit, with a day coming when my body will be transformed to be like Jesus' body, please work now to make my heart like Jesus.    Amen
