2 Corinthians 5:1
For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
If you looked in the mirror this morning, you probably noticed that you are getting older. There is no question about it; your body is aging and it will eventually fail you.
Try as you may, your body is doomed. No matter many gym memberships you have, or how many supplements you take, the mortality rate for the human race is 100%. Unless Jesus comes before, you will face death.
That’s a great thought to begin the week, right.
The good news is that for the Christian, though this body will wear out and die, it will be replaced with one that will last for eternity. We don’t know all the detail, but we do know your new body will never experience pain, never experience hunger, loneliness, or tears. God has prepared an eternal body just for you.
You will no longer worry about being too tall or too short, too fat, too skinny or the thousand other things. Your new body will be a perfect fit to your Spirit because it won’t be made by hands, but by your loving Heavenly Father.
God has made an eternal body for you that will fit perfectly.
Your body is just a temporary container for your spirit. It may last 60,70,80 or even 90 years. But your new body will never grow old, never decay and will last for all eternity.
You can rejoice today because even though this body is fading away, you have new and eternal body waiting for you when we see Jesus.
Let’s Review that promise one more time.
Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. – 2 Corinthians 5:1
Confess this with me.
This body is aging and fading away.
One day it will fail me.
In Jesus Christ, I have new, eternal body.
When I pass from this life into eternity,
I will receive a new and eternal body handmade by God Himself
In Jesus Name,
