Good morning, Family:
Isn’t it wonderful that we can all rejoice that we are walking miracles of God’s grace and mercy. As our “thank you” back to God, we do our best to learn, grow and be transformed by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
Why is it important to do our best to live holy, sanctified, and righteous lives? We are the reflections of God. Our lives are constantly in a state of transformation, as we daily grow in the knowledge and power of God. None of us will be perfect until we are face to face with God, but we strive daily to be please to God, as it is our reasonable sacrifice back to him. Our lives are our offerings.
2 Corinthians 3:16-18
The Message (MSG)
16-18 Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are—face-to-face! They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
