But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 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 3:20-21
Dear Jesus, so many of my dearest friend’s bodies are failing them. Their immune systems cannot triumph over the cancer or the heart is wearing out, or their brain has slipped a cog, or some other organ has thrown a rod. My own body shows the wear and tear of high mileage at an early age. If it were not for the hope of our rescue and ultimate renewal, I would be totally depressed. But I do have hope, albeit sometimes only a small part of my thoughts. I have hope in heaven where we will all be together, where we will all be close friends, where we will all be free from the fear of death. Thank you for tasting death for everyone so we can live through this terrible dream called "dying" with peace and hope in living beyond it all when we "wake up" in heaven. AMEN
