The road on which Denalyn and I take our walks is marked by a small country graveyard. No dirt has been turned for a century. Yet John 5:28-29 says, “A time is coming when all who are dead and in their graves will hear his voice. Then they will come out of their graves.”
If these words are true, someday God will shake the soil of this simple cemetery. The caskets will open, and the bodies of these forgotten farmers will be called into the sky. But in what form? These bodies were wracked by disease and deformity. How will these bodies be worthy of heaven?
Here is Paul’s answer: “The body…is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body” (1 Corinthians 15:42, 44). Spirits will be reunited with bodies, resulting in a spiritual body. You are going to love yours.
