My New Body (sermon audio: Sunday a.m.)
One of the many things we as humans anticipate in the resurrection is our new body. For most, we are thrilled with the prospects of this extreme makeover. But, how extreme will it be? Paul gives us some insight in 1 Corinthians 15:35-49. He tells us that our new body will come from our current body, much like a flower comes from a seed. Our new body will not begin to compare to the old one, for this we are most thankful, but will be fully redeemed. We draw some conclusions also from the risen Christ who was seen in the physicality of his human body, but with one which was clearly different in its capabilities. Like all of creation, our bodies will one day be redeemed and made-over and we will be like Him!
