Daily Bread 4/6/2023


Daily Bread – April 6, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Romans 8:18 – For I calculate that this which befalls us now for a season is not worthy of the glory that is about to be revealed in us. The Glory To Be Revealed Jesus endured the sufferings of the cross with joy realizing it would result in our salvation and His exaltation (Hebrews 12:2). We are also called to share in the same sufferings of Christ, which are all about advancing the Gospel – but it must be kept in the same perspective (Philippians 3:10; 2 Timothy 2:12). However, many of the things we go through are simply Father’s desire to give us something far better than what we have now (1 Peter 1:6-7; James 1:2-3). The glory that is about to be revealed in us is the glory of the resurrected body. We know we are now the sons of God, but the resurrected body has not come into being yet; and so as John puts it, “does not yet appear”. However, the magnitude of the glory that shall be revealed in the resurrected body is on the scale of seeing God as He is because we shall be like Him (1 John 3:2). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
