For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. – Philippians 3:20-21 NKJV
God gives us bodies to live out our lives in, but He knows that we will experience pain, illness, and discomfort. Because our bodies are a gift, we need to take care of ourselves. We can drink more water, eat healthy foods, and exercise.
When we don’t have our health, we can appreciate all the more what God does for us when we recover.
In heaven our bodies will be perfect, just as Jesus is perfect. I’m sure we will still honor what God gives us when we get to heaven, but we won’t have to go to the doctor because we will never be ill. We will be healthy forever. Amen.
