Who Wants A New Body?
Posted: Wednesday, August 24
1 Corinthians 15:29-58
Verse of the day:
Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. (1 Corinthians 15:43)
To experience genuine Christianity is to experience life to the full. Everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. Just think about the huge implications of this!
Jesus raised people from the dead during his ministry on Earth and scripture describes the resurrections of 3 people: the widow’s son at Nain (Luke 7:11-17), Jairus’ daughter (Matthew 9:18-26) and Lazarus (John 11:1-44). As miraculous as each of these healings were, each were resurrected back to their own human bodies. In other words, their healings were temporary because they all still died later in their lives.
