Your Glorified Body
But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. (1 Corinthians 15:35-44)
When you get to heaven and receive your glorified body, it will be similar yet entirely different than the one you currently have. Paul called the process sowing this body of corruption (putting it in the ground) and reaping a body of incorruption.
Our incorruptible bodies will allow us to do things similar to what we saw Jesus do after His resurrection. For example, He ate with His disciples in the 20th chapter of John, and we will eat at the marriage supper of the Lamb in heaven.
You're not going to be an angel or have wings, as some people imagine. You will instead have a body like Jesus' glorified body - always young, always powerful, and immortal. What a beautiful day that will be when we celebrate the wonderful gift of our new, glorified, spectacular body in heaven.
Practical Application – Celebrate heaven before you get there! Look at what Scripture has to say about heaven and rejoice!
Matthew 22:30; Romans 6:5
