1. In Romans 12:1-2, Paul speaks of being transformed, which is the same word as "transfigured," and when we translate it from Greek to English, we get the word metamorphosis, which means "to be changed into another form." What point is Paul making in Romans 12, verses 1-2?
That we are to give our lives totally over to God, as a sacrifice unto Him so that He may use our lives for His glory. And instead of floating downstream with the world, instead of being pressed into their mold, becoming like them, we are to be transformed, changed from the inside out by filling our mind with the things of God and then doing them.
2. Also, in II Corinthians 3:18, that word "transformed" is once again the same word as "transfigured" found in Mark chapter 9, with the idea of a metamorphosis. What is Paul speaking of here in II Corinthians?
That by Gods Spirit we are being changed, made more like Jesus each and every day, or at least we should be! And once again it is a change that takes place on the inside and it overflows into our actions.
3. Read John 1:14. When did they see Jesus in glory?
The first time was on the Mount of transfiguration, and the next time was after His death and resurrection!
4. According to John 17:22-24, what promise does Jesus give to us?
That we will be raised in glory, but first we must come to the cross, give our lives to Jesus, and He will raise us up in glory, we will receive new bodies, mansions, when these tents fall apart and we will go to be with the Lord.
