"For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: "Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious Body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself."
Phil. 3:20, 21

Examination of the Text
The New Covenant affects our whole Man
The Redemption of the Body
The Body of Glory
Conformed to His Body of Glory
We shall be like Him

[1] I think the translation, "native city", is warranted by the occurrence of the word kuparchei, which implies the connection of believers with the Heavenly City as their natal home.
[2] There is strong MS. authority for the omission of the words "all things". They are omitted by the four Editors, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, and Alford.
[3] See Matt. S 45. "That ye may become (genesthe, i.e., become in practically developed likeness) the sons of your Father who is in heaven." The disciples addressed, being the sons of God, were taught to prove this by so living as to resemble their Father. See also Eph. S I. "Be ye therefore imitators (mimetai) of God, as dear children."
