Daily Bread 3/2/2023


Daily Bread – March 2, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) 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. The Image Of The Son God has an image and identity for us – the image and identity of Christ. God predestined us to be conformed to this image (Romans 8:29). We were given this image when we were born of the Spirit. At that very moment, we were created anew in Christ Jesus after the likeness of His righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24). This is what God desires for us to know about ourselves – that for us to live is Christ (Colossians 3:3,10; Philippians 1:21; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Galatians 2:20). If we are willing to take on the image of the Son, then we will discover an ever increasing glory of the manifest presence of Christ Jesus in our lives (Romans 12:2). If we refuse to accept anything other than what God has said about us, then we will arise out of the ashes of shame and failure and experience a continual increase of God’s manifest glory and power in our lives – and we will shine as the noonday sun (Isaiah 60:1; Matthew 5:14, 13:43, 17:2; Philippians 2:15)!
