Philippians 3:20 (NIVUK)
20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
This week we have celebrated the human body with all its potential, achievements and experiences. It’s a good gift from God which we can use to worship and serve him. We are all aware, however, that our bodies pick up aches and pains and imperfections, through illness, genetics, wear and tear, and aging. But here’s the good news of the resurrection, just as Jesus’s body was transformed at his resurrection, so will ours be, to one that is as it is meant to be. Can’t wait!
Thank you Father for our current bodies, and the promise of their transformation to come.
