If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. - Romans 8:11

We can go to scripture to find out exactly what God means when He tells us He will give us life through our mortal bodies. God is going to raise us from the dead at Christ's second coming and give new life to our mortal bodies.  

That reality always blows my mind. This body. The one I have, is going to be given new life. That truth means God is profoundly concerned with my body - He chose this specific body for me to live in for all eternity. If He didn't, then He would let this body rot in the grave and give me a new one. But that wasn't His choice. 

As much as I may want a new body, one without all the flaws I see, this is the one He picked for me. And the great Creator who created this whole beautiful universe, doesn't make mistakes in His creation. He purposefully created me, in this body.  

So, pondering that thought leads me to the realization that there are ramifications for every decision I make about this body. He wants me to take care of this body because this is the one I will have for eternity. There are choices I can make that will glorify God, and there are choices I can make that will not. Struggling with some choices that I don't want to make, but know I must if I am going to properly care for this temple of the Spirit that He has entrusted to me. 


Press on ~ you are loved 💗
