Colossians 4 - 1 Thessalonians 5
"I am a stranger, pilgrim and an ambassador for Jesus here on Earth. I live to reach out to my community with the good news of Jesus' salvation to build the family and kingdom of God. I live for Jesus, live for Eternity, storing up treasure in Heaven and I can't wait till Jesus comes and I get to go there!"
Lord, thank You for our Veterans. Thank You for their willingness to lay down their tomorrows for our today's. Father, we ask that You provide supernaturally for our Veterans in all their needs. We ask You to heal any physical and psychological wounds that have been suffered. Bring Your peace to those who mourn loss of comrades that have fallen in battle. Father we ask that they find the honor and recognition they deserve for their service.

Through sin all of us have fallen short of the glory of God. We were separated from His wonderful presence and it’s great effect on our lives, spirit, soul and body. But now through our Lord Jesus Christ we have been restored back to the presence of God, His Spirit placed in, on and with us and we have an awesome hope of the transforming power to make our lives glorious. This is the great mystery…Christ in us. We live now under the transforming, glorifying work of God the Holy Spirit.
Transforming from glory to glory
1) Revelation- spend time specifically praying that God would reveal the different areas and impacts of His presence in your life.
2) Faith & Hope- as the Lord reveals this truth and elements of His glory, set, build and stir up both your hope and faith in it for your life.
3) Time- spending time with God the Holy Spirit in prayer and praise…quietly waiting, listening.
4) Graced Holiness- in order for God to take us from glory to glory…to higher levels in Him, in His presence, power, ability, blessing etc…we must be willing and pursuing holiness. God’s presence and sin have a negative, curse, effect, whereas God’s presence and obedience have a positive, blessing effect.
As we willingly work with God to see our lives become more and more glorious…may it inspire us to hope, believe, follow and praise the Lord Jesus!
