In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul discusses the great differences between our earthly bodies and our resurrected bodies (see 1 Corinthians 15:35-54). Contrasting our earthly bodies with the splendor of our heavenly (resurrected) bodies, Paul says, “The body that is sown is perishable, it raised imperishable it is sown in dishonor, 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.
In short, our resurrected bodies are spiritual, imperishable, and raised in glory and power.
That’s some good stuff right there, I can’t wait. But here’s my “just a thought” on the matter.
With all the imperishable glory and power, will there ever be a need to take a nap? If not I won’t complain but I do wonder what eternity would be like sans one of the earthly things I find (on the rare occaison I have time) emensly enjoyable.
This was inspired by my good blogging friend Wally Fry over at Truth in Palmyra.
