Reading: “It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body” —1 Corinthians 15:44

The apostle Paul tells us that our resurrection body will be raised a “spiritual body.” It will not be a spirit but spiritual flesh, as the body of Jesus is now—a body that cannot die (Luke 20:36). We will be as Jesus called us “children of the resurrection,” wholly conformed to the Holy Spirit. No longer conformed to this world, or the flesh, and free from the temptations of the flesh and the world and the devil. We will be subject only to the Spirit because the risen body, made like Jesus’ will be so richly possessed and indwelt by the Holy Spirit that it will delight in holy, spiritual activities.

“For now through faith in Christ we are enriched, as with an earnest, with the first-fruits of the Holy Spirit. But after the Resurrection, sin being wholly taken away, the Holy Spirit will be in us, not as an earnest or in a measure; but richly bounteously and perfectly shall we enjoy the grace through Christ.”—Cyril.
