This Body Fashioned Anew!

Encouraging thoughts from Charles Hadden Spurgeon


Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body” (Philippians 3:21).

Often when we are racked with pain and unable to think or worship, we feel that this indeed is “the body of our humiliation,” and when we are tempted by the passions which rise from the flesh we do not think the word vile at all too vigorous a translation. Our bodies humble us; and that is about the best thing they do for us. Oh, that we were duly lowly, because our bodies ally us with animals and even link us with the dust!

But our Savior, the Lord Jesus, shall change all this. We shall be fashioned like His own body of glory. This will take place in all who believe in Jesus. By faith their souls have been transformed, and their bodies will undergo such a renewal as shall fit them for their regenerated spirits. How soon this grand transformation will happen we cannot tell; but the thought of it should help us to bear the trials of today and alt the woes of the flesh. In a little while we shall be as Jesus now is. No more aching brows, no more swollen limbs, no more dim eyes, no more fainting hearts. The old man shall be no more a bundle of infirmities, nor the sick man a mass of agony. “Like unto his glorious body.” What an expression! Even our flesh shall rest in hope of such a resurrection!

    Forrest, thank you so much for that reminder!!! It excites me to know that all the special needs children Karen and I work with each week will one day be completely whole.

    I love each and everyone of these special angels!!! I rejoice in their progress. As special as they are to me I know that my Heavenly Father loves them even more!!!

    Always praying for you!!!

    Thank you for this quote. And the accompanying verse. In our illness (and the ramifications thereof) we lose quickly our self-sufficiency and bow down to God in all things.

    These thoughts of Spurgeon reminded me of Matthew Henry’s description of the apparent oxymorons in the opening verses of Ecclesiates 7. It’s only when viewed from a spiritual perspective that Ecclesiates 7 makes any sense – even to a believer.

    So much of the teaching of Christ is thus. The last will be first. The greatest among us is a servant. We must be poor in order to be rich. And we must die in order to live. Indeed, God”s ways only become man’s ways when he is born from above and has a spiritual mind–a Christ directed mind!
