D. Awaiting Christ for
the Transfiguration of the Body
17 Be aimitators together of me, brothers, and observe those who thus walk even as you have us as a bpattern.
18 For 1many walk, of whom I have told you often and now tell you even aweeping, that they are the enemies of the 2bcross of Christ,
19 1Whose end is adestruction, whose god is their bstomach, and whose glory is in their cshame, who dset their minds on 2earthly things.
20 For our 1acommonwealth exists in the 2bheavens, from which also we eagerly cawait a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
21 Who will 1atransfigure the 2bbody of our humiliation to be cconformed to the 3body of His dglory, 4according to His operation by which He is able even to esubject all things to Himself.
