Big Truth:

God Offers The Promise Of A New Body

Bible Verse:

For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

1 Corinthians 15:53-54

Big Ideas:

  • God created us to live for eternity.
  • Sin leads to death and death comes to everyone.
  • Jesus defeated sin and death and rose again with a new body.
  • Every believer will receive a new body one day without the effects of sin.

Bible Story:

Luke 24:36-53

After Jesus’ resurrection, He appeared to His disciples, revealing His glorified body. Jesus’ resurrection from the dead means that He rules over death. It also means that those who believe in Him will receive glorified bodies that are not subject to death and disease. We will be like Him when He returns.


New Creation

Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also making everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
