I Have a New and Eternal Body
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.
2 Corinthians 5:1
You Are Getting Older
Every day your body grows older and moves closer to death. As a Christian, you don’t fear death because you have an eternal body Jesus has prepared for you.
If you looked in the mirror this morning, you probably noticed that you are getting older. You may not want to admit it, but your body is aging and 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 human race’s mortality rate is 100%. Unless Jesus comes before, you will face death.
I know that’s not very encouraging, but I have some good news.
Though your body is getting older, wearing out, and will one day fail, as a Christian, you have a new eternal body waiting to replace it. We don’t know all the details about your new body, but we do know your new body will never experience pain or hunger. It will never experience sickness, loneliness, or tears. God has prepared an eternal body just for you.
You will no longer worry about being too tall or short, too fat, too skinny, or the thousand other things. Your new body will be a perfect fit for your spirit.
God has handcrafted your eternal body just for you.
Your current body is just a temporal container for who you really are. Your body may last 60,70,80 or even 90 years. But your new body will never grow old, never decay, and last for all eternity.
You can rejoice today because even though your earthly body is fading away, you have a new and eternal body waiting for you when you die.
Let’s Review that promise one more time.
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. – 2 Corinthians 5:1
Make These Confessions.
- My body is aging and will one day fail me.
- In Jesus Christ, I have a new, eternal body.
- When I pass from this life into eternity,
- I will receive a new and eternal body handmade by God.
In Jesus Name,
Death is not final. When you close your eyes in death, you will open them in a new body, in the presence of God for all eternity.
