New Bodies (Hebrews 12:2)


In 1928, a young Ben Franklin composed his own tombstone epitaph:

The body of B. Franklin, a printer, like the cover of an old book, its contents worn out, and script of its lettering and gilding, lies here, food for worms. Yet the work shall not be lost; for it will as he believ’d appear once more, in a new & more beautiful edition, corrected and amended by the Author.

The bodies we now possess are prone to aging, physical decline, and ultimately death. But the resurrection of Jesus Christ holds within it the promise of a new supernatural body raised in glory.

As life takes its course in the aging process, we have the hope of a new body that will far outshine the original. Despite our aches and pains, our destiny belongs safely in the hands of “Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). – Dennis Fisher

New bodies will be ours someday

According to God’s grand design,

Forever with the Lord to reign –

Praise God for the promise divine! – Hess

In the twinkling of an eye … we shall be changed. – The Apostle Paul
