There was once a famous tailer who used the APPLE as
He was quoted as saying, "If it weren't for the apple, where
would we be today in respect to clothing?"
1 Cor 15:47-49
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the
Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is
the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also
bear the image of the heavenly.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Adam was of "the earth, earthy."
Jesus is "the Lord from heaven."
Though our Lord bore the "image" of the "earthy" for awhile,
He IS "the heavenly!"
And such is those who are born again by His cleansing blood and Holy Spirit!
Can you imagine it?
But it is TRUE!
Though we cannot comprehend the totality of the change, it WILL take place!
God has already given us "glory" in these earthly bodies.
We are, after all, made in the "image" of His likeness.
And we are given dominion over the earth, even though we have all
willingly abdicated our righteous position by sinfulness.
But one blessed day, God will change our bodies and make them like Christ!
For Jesus Himself said, "because I live, ye shall live also." (See John 14:19)
And the manner in which He lives shall also be the manner in
which we live!
What a glorious day that will be!!
For those truly saved, the change is BEGINNING even today!
God's Holy Spirit is making changes in His saved people a little at a time.
As we constantly look toward Christ our Lord, He FIRST changes our desires.
And when desires change, then actions begin to change!
Is your life reflecting the changes God's Holy Spirit is making in you?
Yes, you are "earthy," but you are also "OF the heavenly!"
Be careful that you are not so earthly bound to be of no heavenly use.
Be careful that you are not so heavenly minded as to be of no earthly use.
