Unless
by PamFord Davis

Unless…

What flashes in your mind when reading that word?

To me, it means there is a possibility for a decidedly different outcome.

The husband is going to miss his 25th wedding anniversary dinner; unless he catches the next direct flight home. 

Note the importance of the word ‘unless’ in Apostle Paul’s message.

“But someone will say, ‘How are the dead raised? What kind of body will they have when they come?’ Foolish one! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. And as for what you sow—you are not sowing the future body, but only a seed, perhaps of wheat or another grain.  But God gives it a body as He wants, and to each of the seeds its own body.  Not all flesh is the same flesh; there is one flesh for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is different from that of the earthly ones. There is a splendor of the sun, another of the moon, and another of the stars; for one star differs from another star in splendor. So it is with the resurrection of the dead:

Sown in corruption, raised in incorruption;
sown in dishonor, raised in glory;
sown in weakness, raised in power;
sown a natural body, raised a spiritual body.

If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body (1 Corinthians 15:35-44 HCSB).” 

By grace-through faith… We are saved, sown and raised to receive spiritual bodies.
