Glorious bodies

A little girl, sitting on her grandfather’s lap as he read her a story, from time to time would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek then stroke her own. Finally she said: ‘Grandpa, did God make you?’ ‘Yes,’ he said. ‘God made me a long time ago.’ ‘And did God make me too?’ she asked. ‘Yes,’he said. ‘God made you just a little while ago.’ Feeling their faces again she made the profound observation: ‘He’s getting better at it, isn’t he?’
But, like it or not, one of the inescapable facts of human existence is change and decay. But alongside this stands one of the great promises of the Bible that for those who belong to Christ, one day that will change. ‘He will take these dying bodies of ours,’ the Bible says, ‘and change them into glorious bodies like his own.’
