THEIR DESTINY IS DESTRUCTION,
THEIR GOD IS THEIR STOMACH,
AND THEIR GLORY IS IN THEIR SHAME.
THEIR MIND IS ON EARTHLY THINGS.
BUT OUR CITIZENSHIP IS IN HEAVEN.
AND WE EAGERLY AWAIT A SAVIOR FROM THERE,
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
WHO BY THE POWER THAT ENABLES HIM
TO BRING EVERYTHING UNDER HIS CONTROL,
WILL TRANSFORM OUR LOWLY BODIES
SO THAT THEY WILL BE LIKE HIS GLORIOUS BODY.
The Apostle Paul, here, is speaking of Christians
Whose minds are on Earthly things,
And therefore they become Enemies of the Cross;
They refuse to be crucified with Christ
To this Wicked World and its Wicked Ways.
