“It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.”
-1 Corinthians 15:44
God loves you. He loves your body and wants to save your whole life right where you are, right now.
You may be thinking, “Bobby, I don’t believe that.” If that’s what you’re thinking, write to me. I want to pray for you. I want you to know God loves your body. Your body is a very sacred thing. He calls it a temple. And Easter is the celebration that someday God is going to rescue this earth.
Now, the cross may bring us to heaven, but resurrection brings heaven to earth. We must not forget that. What God wants done right here is heaven on earth today. We pray for it every day. And we continue to hope for it and work for it. If you believe in it, say, “Amen!”
Prayer: Dear Lord, I believe in your saving grace. Save me, my whole life, where I am right now. As we near Easter, and celebrate the hope that Easter brings, I also celebrate the day when God will rescue the whole world, bringing heaven to earth. Amen.
Reflection: Do you ever doubt that God loves you, your whole body, where you are right now? What convinces you that he does?
