Pondering Jesus Resurrection #4

“So when you think of your new birth, think of it as the first installment of what is coming. Your body and the whole world will one day take part in this regeneration. God’s final purpose is not spiritually renewed souls inhabiting decrepit bodies in a disease and disaster ravaged world. His purpose is a renewed world with renewed bodies and renewed souls that take our renewed sense and make them a means of enjoying and praising God.”

John Piper (Finally Alive – 89)
