Daily Bread 3/1/2023


Daily Bread – March 1, 2023 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) 2 Corinthians 3:18 – And all of us, with an unveiled face beholding the glory of the Lord in a mirror, are transfigured into the same image from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord. Transfigured Into The Same Image Moses beheld the glory of the Lord, and his face shown with the glory of the encounter (Exodus 34:29-35; 2 Corinthians 3:7, 13). Jesus was caught up into the glory of God and was transfigured before Peter, James, and John (Matthew 17:1-2; Mark 9:2-3). Today, Gods’ people also have an opportunity to be transfigured. We are transfigured as we allow our hearts and minds to come into agreement with the Word of God. As we take hold of the things God has said about us and believe we are what He declares us to be, then we are renewed in the spirit of our mind and are transfigured into the image of Christ (Ephesians 4:23; Romans 8:29, 12:1-2). We must be willing to make no provision for the realm of humanity, and instead, allow the Spirit of the Lord to cloth us with the splendor and image of Christ (Galatians 3:27; Romans 13:14). We are suppose to look at ourselves in the light of what God has both said about us and made us to be in Christ Jesus. When we look at our reflection, we should see the glory of the Lord and find ourselves being transfigured into the glorious image of Christ. We are continually faced with the challenge as to whether we will believe what man and demon spirits say about us, or to believe what God says about us. If we will accept the identity we have been given by God in Christ Jesus and walk according to the Word of God, then we will realize all of the glory and splendor of the life of Christ (Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 3:19)!
