1 Corinthians 15:40-44
40 There are bodies in the heavens, and there are bodies on earth. The glory of the heavenly bodies is different from the beauty of the earthly bodies. 41 The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their beauty and brightness. 42 It is the same way for the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies, which die and decay, will be different when they are resurrected, for they will never die. 43 Our bodies now disappoint us, but when they are raised, they will be full of glory. They are weak now, but when they are raised, they will be full of power. 44 They are natural human bodies now, but when they are raised, they will be spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, so also there are spiritual bodies.

Because Christ rose from the dead, He is a life-giving Spirit. This means that He entered into a new form of existence. He is the source of the spiritual life that will result in our resurrection. Christ’s new glorified human body was suitable to His natural life. He walked and talked and lived as a human after He rose from the dead.Â His disciples did not always know Him as Jesus, but they knew Him as a human because that was the form His resurrected body was in. And so it will be for those of us who believe in the work He did on the cross. When we are resurrected, God will give us a transformed eternal body suited to our new eternal life. So when this body you are in now fails you, remember it is just dust and will one day be gone. It just houses your spirit and will one day return to the earth. But you will go on forever and Christ will give you a new body that is not corrupted and will never get sick or die. So face the limitations of this body with the confidence that one day you will have a body that will never get old and never get sick.Â Praise His name forever!
Have a God Day!
