The roses. ( John 11 25 - 26 )

The roses in my living room are dead, they look a sorry sight,now they are only fit to be thrown out, everything is growing older. Age  takes its told on roses and humans.  so that's it,like the roses ,are we to be just thrown away?, is that all we can look forward to?.The people in Corinth were confused about death,and so in chapter 15 of 1st Corinthians Paul writes to them explaining the resurrection. He starts of by reminding them of Christs resurrection, he reminds them that hundreds of people witnessed the resurrected Lord.Paul himself had an encounter with the risen Lord Acts 9. our faith is based on historical facts.Without the resurrection our faith is absolutely pointless,we might as well ,just live for  today,for tomorrow we die.Then from v 35 ff Paul writes of the glory of our resurrected body,it will a spiritual body,bearing the likeness of Jesus. The body we have now is not permeate ,that is obvious, but our new bodies will be imperishable ,and immortal,it will not be subject to death.for death will cease.                                                                                                                                                                                               But thanks be to God, who gives us                                                                                                           the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.                                                                                                              ( 1 Corinthians 15 v 57 )
