    I love the bible
  • Ben Weaver
    Frequently misinterpreted verse! The Greek grammar was "present tense and ongoing" which also fits with the context. Whenever Christ, who is our life, is manifest (made to appear)- in our affection, (see vs. 2) then we also, with Him will be manifested, in His state of glory. All of ch.2 is contrasting Jesus against and over our own religious efforts. V. 4 need not be withdrawn from the context.

Sometimes this is difficult : But God will not have me do anything that He has not done Himself : I am to be Christ like : this is a continual submitting to Holy Spirit in me.
