…who, by the power that enables Him to subject all things to Himself, will transform our lowly bodies to be like His glorious body. – Philippians 3:21
Do you ever feel worn out? Are you showing a little wear and tear? Do you sometimes wake up with aches and pains? Are you tired of getting sick or battling a disease?
Our bodies go through alot. They confront heat, cold, germs, accidents, disease and the weight of all our internal struggles and stress we place upon them. No matter what we might do to care for them—exercise, diet, rest, treatments—eventually they will wear out and stop working.
But Jesus has an amazing encouragement for us. Not only did He defeat sin and death with His resurrection, He also promises to remake our bodies into something glorious. He says we will be like Him. The One who imagined and created the entire universe, including each of us, is going to use that same power to change our bodies completely.
He has transformed us from being enslaved to sin into children who are forgiven and clean. He has given us a new heart and a new life. And someday, He will also transform our bodies as well. We will reflect the beauty of His creation and the wonder of His love for us. No more aches and pains, or sickness and disease. We will be glorified, and live with Him in a new heaven and earth!
