If someone gave me a package of mixed seeds and asked me to guess what kind of plant would grow from each seed, that is what I would have to do, guess.  I would have no way of knowing.

    Seeds amaze me.  You put this dead seed into the ground, add water and a plant grows.  Nutrients are taken from the soil and turned into a plant.  The seed that we plant does not look anything like the plant that grows.  It all starts with a dead seed.

    The same is true of Christians as we pass from this world.  Our dead body is put into the ground and our resurrected body that enters heaven will be quite different.  “You could never guess what a tomato would look like by looking at a tomato seed. What we plant in the soil and what grows out of it don’t look anything alike. The dead body that we bury in the ground and the resurrection body that comes from it will be dramatically different.” (1 Corinthians 15:38, The Message)

    Those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ will receive that new resurrected body when they die and enter heaven.  We cannot earn that body, it is a reward for our belief and faith in Jesus.
