OUR ETERNAL BODIES

“The Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.” (Philippians 3: 20b-21)

Trying to understand what our bodies will be like in heaven is much like expecting an acorn to understand his destiny of roots, bark, branches, and leaves. Or asking a caterpillar to appreciate flying. Or a peach pit to fathom being fragrant. Or a coconut to grasp what it means to sway in the ocean breeze. Our eternal bodies will be so grand, so glorious, that we can only catch a fleeting glimpse of the splendor to come...

You and what you will one day be are one and the same -- yet different. "Our lowly bodies... will be like His glorious body." Astounding.

-- Joni Eareckson Tada in “Heaven: Your Real Home”
