My amazing wife and neighbors were helping me into the house this week after a Star Wars surgery involving lasers to break up a 7.3mm kidney stone and extract the debris. “Pew pew”. My neighbor Jim asked, “Anything you need, brother?” I responded, “A new body.”
One day, I will get a new body … an eternal one.
In Romans 8:23, Paul calls it “the redemption of our bodies”. 1 Corinthians 15:53 says, “For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.”
In your ailments, remember the hope inaugurated through Jesus’ resurrection. If you are saved by grace through faith in Jesus, you too will one day rise and receive a glorified body, no longer tormented by kidney stones, Alzheimers, ALS, cancer, migraines, allergies, common colds or whatever ails you.
One more of millions of reasons to give your life to Jesus, the Author and Finisher.
