Sunday Morning SoundBytes – 6/25/2017

Sunday’s message in our Real Answers about Heaven series was called New Body Anyone?, taken from 1 Corinthians 15:42-44. Here is a brief outline of the message:

I. When will you get your new body?
   A. When Christ returns
      – John 5:28-29; 1 Thessalonians 4:14
   B. The dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are still alive
      – 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
   C. We will all be changed “in an instant”
      – 1 Corinthians 15:51-52

II. What will your new body be like?
   A. It will be the same body but different
      – Job 19:25-27; 1 Corinthians 15:35-37,42
   B. There will be four major differences (1 Corinthians 15:42-44)
      1) perishable > imperishable (John 11:25-26)
      2) dishonorable > glorious (Matthew 13:43)
      3) weak > powerful (Isaiah 40:31)
      4) natural > spiritual (Romans 8:10-11)
   C. Your new body will be like Jesus’ resurrection body
      – Philippians 3:20-21; 1 John 3:2-3

III. Why will we get new bodies?
   A. Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God
      – John 3:5-6; 1 Corinthians 15:50
   B. Our physical bodies are part of God’s good creation
      – Genesis 1:31; Romans 8:20-21
   C. Sin and death must be completely defeated
      – Romans 8:22-24; 1 Corinthians 15:53-57
