THE REDEMPTION OF OUR BODIES

Rom 8:23

Not only this, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we eagerly await our adoption, the redemption of our bodies.

I got a question from a reader of Streamglobe Devotional on BBM. The question was about why women who are saved still have to suffer childbirth pains since it is a result of the curse of sin and Jesus has dealt with that on the cross. I found the answer to this question one that would help us understand certain truths.

When Jesus died on the cross, his death instantly took care of the spiritual consequence of the fall for they that believe; these consequences include curses, spiritual death etc. And the new birth we have in Christ is spiritual. Our new birth has not yet taken care of the physical consequences of the fall. That is why we are not covered in glory but still have to wear clothes; the issue of childbirth pains also falls under the category of physical consequences of the fall. All these will change when the rapture happens and our bodies are redeemed. We can now be said to have been free from the flesh. The redemption of our bodies is the hope of our calling. See Romans 8:20-23

Go into today knowing that even though there is alot about our new nature as Gods sons that will only be revealed when our bodies have been redeemed, the Holy spirit within us causes us to see the first fruits of these glorious realities.

Prayer: Thank you father for loving me so much, thank you because my life as a Christian keeps getting better and better until the perfect day. I pray you help me never loose sight of my identity, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
