"And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being" (Genesis 2:7 NIV).
Our resurrected bodies are eternal.
"Then he said to Thomas, 'Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe"' (John 20:27 NIV).
Strength for the journey
Just like His nail-pierced hands and wounded side, what we do in the body goes with us.
What we become here determines some of what we are there.
