Natural and Spiritual Body Are One

Carl Higashi


1 Cor. 15:42-44
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown [l]a perishable body, it is raised [m]an imperishable body; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.


The resurrection of the dead brings glory to God in its fullest! At death our physical bodies come to an end. It is placed in the ground and like all living things the physical body perishes. But what Paul goes on to say to the believers in Corinth, is a natural body also contains a spiritual body.

At the resurrection of Christ, God's power to overcome the grave was revealed to over 500 people. God has the ability to overcome all things that are physical, even the power of death was not match to the awsome power of God as he resurrected Jesus Christ on the third day.

His natural body was brought to life and His spiritual body was all in one!


As I go through the spiritual journey of focusing on my physical body and how best to give glory to God through my body, I am reminded that the spiritual body and the physical body work together and therefore I must always seek first the Kingdom of God through His word daily for clear reminders that in this life I will always need the strength of Jesus to overcome my physical challenges. But through trusting Him fully, I can overcome all temptation and trials that I may face regarding to eating, exercise, and other things that may affect my physical health.

1. Pray when temptation get difficult to handle.
2. Call an accountability partner for support.


Lord thank you for your gift of life both physically and spiritually. Please continue to grow the Spirit of God in me that I may be able too overcome every attack of the enemy. May I continue to learn to die to my fleshly desires so that my body best glorify You.

Help me to continue to build a better temple for You Lord in my body.

Love you Lord with all my heart, mind, soul, and body.

In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
