PT9 Since you have been Raised To New Life With Christ, Set Your Sights On The Realities Of Heaven, Where Christ Sits At God's Right Hand In The Place Of Honor And Power. Let Heaven Fill Your Thoughts. Do not think only about things down here on Earth. For You Died When Christ Died, And Your Real Life Is Hidden With CHRIST IN GOD. And When Christ, WHO Is Your Real Life Is Revealed To The Whole World, You Will Share In All His Glory. Colossians 3:1-4 Lesson here: Our Transformation Begins when we Believe, and Give All Control Of Our Lives to The Holy Spirit! "And All Of Us Have Had That Veil Removed So That We Can Be Mirrors That Brightly Reflect The Glory Of The Lord. And As The Spirit Of The Lord Works Within Us, We Become More And More LIKE HIM And Reflect HIS GLORY EVEN MORE." 2 Corinthians 3:18 "And now you also have Heard The Truth, The Good News That God Saved You. And When You Believe In Christ, HE IDENTIFIED YOU AS HIS OWN By Giving You The HOLY SPIRIT, Whom HE Promised Long Ago. The SPIRIT IS GOD'S GUARANTEE That HE Will Give Us Everything HE Promised And That HE Has Purchased Us To BE HIS OWN PEOPLE. This Is Just One More Reason For Us To Praise Our Glorious God." Ephesians 1:13-14 We are told we Must Be Transformed, this is not a physical work this is a Mental and Spiritual Work. It The Actual WAR That Takes Place Inside Of Us! "And So Dear brothers and sisters, "I Plead With You To Give Your Bodies To God. Let them be A LIVING AND HOLY SACRIFICE---The Kind HE Will Accept. When You Think Of What HE Has Done For You, Is This Too Much To Ask? Don't Copy The Behavior And Customs Of This World, BUT LET GOD TRANSFORM YOU INTO A NEW PERSON BY CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know How Good And Pleasing And Perfect HIS Will Really Is." Romans 12:1-2 We Must Stop Trying To Change Ourselves, And Let GOD TRANSFORM US INTO NEW PERSONS. THE REAL WAR IS Surrendering Our Spirit, Mind's, Bodies, and Souls To GOD!
