Eternal Makeover!

Click here to listen to blog

These ugly and weak bodies will become beautiful and strong.  As surely as there are physical bodies, there are spiritual bodies. And our physical bodies will be changed into spiritual bodies. The first man was named Adam, and the Scriptures tell us that he was a living person. But Jesus, who may be called the last Adam, is a life-giving spirit.  We see that the one with a spiritual body did not come first. He came after the one who had a physical body. The first man was made from the dust of the earth, but the second man came from heaven. Everyone on earth has a body like the body of the one who was made from the dust of the earth. And everyone in heaven has a body like the body of the one who came from heaven. Just as we are like the one who was made out of earth, we will be like the one who came from heaven.

My friends, I want you to know that our bodies of flesh and blood will decay. This means they cannot share in God's kingdom, which lasts forever.  I will explain a mystery to you. Not every one of us will die, but we will all be changed.  It will happen suddenly, quicker than the blink of an eye. At the sound of the last trumpet the dead will be raised. We will all be changed, so we will never die again.  Our dead and decaying bodies will be changed into bodies that won't die or decay.   The bodies we now have are weak and can die. But they will be changed into bodies that are eternal. Then the Scriptures will come true,

“Death has lost the battle!

1 Corinthians 15:43-54

Millions, if not billions of dollars are spent every year by people who want their physical bodies to “never die.”  Exercise and weight loss programs are coupled with “plastic” surgeries and all kinds of nutritional supplements to avoid the inevitable aging and death process!

But if you are a follower of Jesus Christ, your body will experience an “Eternal Makeover” that will leave you looking and feeling young forever!    Now, certainly it is not wrong to take care of your physical body here on this earth, but no matter how hard you work at it, your physical body will not last forever!  Even on this earth, a little baby becomes a child and a child becomes an adult.  If you have Jesus as the Lord of your life, your final change will be at the twinkling of an eye and your new body will be like the body of Jesus and it will last forever!  So instead of spending all your time and money trying to make this human body last forever, or simply look like it will, invest all you have into being ready for the change!  And you can be certain that the change will come!

“Lord Jesus, thank You for the promise that I will get a body that will be like Yours, and that I can keep that body forever!  Praise Your Holy Name!  Amen.”
