In His Image…


I wonder; I mull the subject in question over in my cluttered mind.  SEPTEMBER 2014 002
What will my body be like after I die?

(1 Corinthians 15:42-52 KJV).
42 “So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (1 Corinthians 15:42-52 KJV).
God created Adam and Eve in his image; in rebellion, they sinned and tarnished that image. Once more, his children by adoption will bear his image.

Glory to his name!

    Interesting to contemplate. I’ve heard we will all look about 25. I don’t know if that’s right, but I want my body to look as good as it can when I die, just in case I’ll look like that for eternity. One more mile on that treadmill should help, right?
