A New Body

He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.  (Philippians 3:21 NLT)

Someday our bodies will change.  There is within all of us the seed of a new body.  It will be a real body.  Jesus' resurrected body was a flesh and bones body.  Read enough to walk on the road to Emmaus.  Real enough to eat a breakfast of fish and chips with his disciples.  Real enough to appear as a gardener to Mary.  Real enough for Thomas to put his hand in his wounds.  It was a visible body and will one day ride forth with his army of saints on a beautiful white horse.

   Is your body weak, racked with pain, crippled, arhtritic, or corrupted by disease?  Take courage because Jesus promised you a new body.  One that will be immortal, insocrruptible, sin free, physically perfect, and pure.  In that day, your soul and body will reunite, and you will be like Jesus. 

   In the meantime, what are you doing to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ?
