So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. – 1 Corinthians 15:42-44 (NIV)
Paul gives us a stunning passage about our future. Our current body will be changed dramatically. Is your body run down? Has age taken its toll? The good news to you is that there is coming something glorious and powerful. The picture of the resurrection on the last day challenges our current view of our bodies. The spiritual body that will come from our current state brings hope to all of us, young and old.
