1 Corinthians 15:49 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man. (NIV)

The other day someone said to me they were glad they wouldn’t be overweight when they lived in heaven.  God did create us in His image but that image is our spirits.  That image died when man first disobeyed God.  That image was housed in our physical bodies, the image of the earthly person.  When we accept Jesus into our hearts, minds and lives we are reborn into the image of God. Our spirits are reborn.  We have no idea what our spirits will be housed in when the morning comes – the day God gives us new bodies.  Jesus put on the image of the earthly man so He could take on the sin, the disobedience of earthly man.  He showed us He knew the problems of earthly man for He experienced them first hand, yet without sinning – without disobedience to the Father.  We need not worry about how we will look in heaven.  We can be sure it will be beautiful and sinless.  We will know one another because we will recognize the spirit of each other – the part of us that is the real us created in the perfect image of our Father, God.  There will be no male or female but all will be in the perfect image of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Praise God.
