310 The Resurrection Body

“If Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness” (Romans 8:10).

Oh, so this is why my body is aging and aching in places! I thought that the salvation Jesus won for us includes restoration of body, as well as soul and spirit. Isn’t healing of the body indicated in Isaiah 53:4,5 and 1 Peter 2:24? So what is Paul saying here? That sin still affects my body?

Sin does still affect you, not only in body but soul and spirit can also be impacted by it. You are not perfect yet and you also live in a sinful world. Your soul and spirit are affected by what you choose to believe as truth. This also applies to your body but there is the added factor of a corrupted world where pollution, deception and greed fight against good health.

But, and this is what you can be sure of, My promises of healing and abundant life are absolutely true. In your walk with Me you will be empowered for the full life I have planned for you. I do restore the years that the locusts have eaten (Joel 2:25, KJV), I do give you strength in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9), I do heal completely on many occasions as My love gift to you. But your body carries the seeds of decay and death in order that you may receive the resurrection body won for you on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:42,43), and you cannot even imagine the joy and fulfilment that life has waiting for you (1 Corinthians 2:9).
