Text: 1 Corinthians 15:50-57.

Like the seed is destroyed in the soil in order to produce a new plant, we also must die so that the body may be changed into a new one which is imperishable or which does not die any more. This is a mystery difficult to easily understand, but it is the explanation we have about physical and eternal life – on Earth we have a physical body and in eternity we must have another kind of body.

What lessons do you learn from this reading especially in relation to death? Is there anything you need to claim or apply? But thanks be to God who gives us the victory … (verse 57).

Lord God, in the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour, teach me the mysteries of eternal life. Amen.
