We are all waiting earnestly for the moment of Christ'd return. When He comes He will give us the eternal body like He has. Read the following verses for your spiritual edification today.
NIV I Corinthians 15:51-54 reads,
51 " Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory."
Why do we have that hope in Christ? It's to see Him face to face and serve Him forever as eternal children in God's Kingdom - A thousand year Kingdom on earth and the New Heaven and New Earth forever and ever. Paul admonishes us in verse 58 in the same chapter;
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Let us keep doing whatever we do for His Honor and Glory because we know that our labor in Him is not in vain at all but will be fully rewarded from the Lord Jesus. Soli Deo Gloria!
