Read Philippians 3:10-21
PAUL’S GLORY IS DISCLOSED IN VERSES 20-21.
The transforming of his fleshly body into the image of Christ, “Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body.”
His Singleness, “this one thing I do” verse 13.
His Steadfastness, “I press toward the mark” verse 14.
His Standard, “the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” verse 14.
The problem of unstable double minded Christians (James 4:8) would be resolved if all believers would pattern their lives after Christ’s and Paul’s example.
As Christians WE FACE AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE IN AMERICA, BUT WE MUST FACE THE FUTURE WITH:
CONSECATION IN OUR CHRISTIAN LIFE.
CONFIDENCE IN OUR COMING LORD.
CONSISTENCY TOWARD THE ULTIMATE ETERNAL GOAL-THE GLORY OF THE PRESENCE OF OUR SAVIOUR’S FACE.
1 John 3:2-3, “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.”
