1 Corinthians 15:37-43 When you plant something, what you plant does not have the same “body” that it will have later. What you plant is only a seed, maybe wheat or something else. But God gives it the body that he has planned for it, and he gives each kind of seed its own body. All things made of flesh are not the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds have another, and fish have yet another kind. Also there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. But the beauty of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the beauty of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of beauty, the moon has another kind, and the stars have another. And each star is different in its beauty. It will be the same when those who have died are raised to life. The body that is “planted” in the grave will ruin and decay, but it will be raised to a life that cannot be destroyed. When the body is “planted,” it is without honour. But when it is raised, it will be great and glorious. When the body is “planted,” it is weak. But when it is raised, it will be full of power.

Many people are happy to believe in Jesus’ promise of eternal life, in theory, but in practice we know the stark reality of death – a body in a coffin. Our earthly body inevitably decays.

So, when you get down to the nitty-gritty, how does this whole resurrection, eternal life thing actually work? Here’s Paul again …

1 Corinthians 15:37-42 When you plant something, what you plant does not have the same “body” that it will have later. What you plant is only a seed, maybe wheat or something else. But God gives it the body that he has planned for it, and he gives each kind of seed its own body. All things made of flesh are not the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds have another, and fish have yet another kind. Also there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies. But the beauty of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the beauty of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of beauty, the moon has another kind, and the stars have another. And each star is different in its beauty. It will be the same when those who have died are raised to life. The body that is “planted” in the grave will ruin and decay, but it will be raised to a life that cannot be destroyed. When the body is “planted,” it is without honour. But when it is raised, it will be great and glorious. When the body is “planted,” it is weak. But when it is raised, it will be full of power.

Believe in Jesus and one day you’ll receive a brand new, beautiful heavenly body that’ll last you forever.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
