Bible thought for December 9
An earthly body made of flesh and blood cannot get into God's kingdom. These perishable bodies are not the right kind to live forever; but I am telling you this strange and wonderful secret….we shall all be given new bodies which cannot perish but will live forever.
1 Corinthians 15 : 50 -52.
Believing the same person who "shuffles off this mortal coil" will move into a spiritual body in another sphere offers us a glorious adventure for our future.
