Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. 1 John 3:2-3

One of the "groaner" moments I share with my children and grandchildren and wife is when the old pictures come out. How did that cute baby become this old man? Where is "buff" Jim go? Who in the world convinced me that that hairstyle was hip? Thirteen really was an awkward age. Gravity is gaining on me!

The Laws of Thermodynamics tell me that physical stuff yearns to become more basic, simple, small scale; too deteriorate. Who had a car or house or body for that matter that got better with age? Everything physical is leaning towards death.

John (above) tells us about Christodynamics. If we want, while our physical body is falling apart, we can develop our spiritual body. God has given us all the tools to become like Jesus in every way. If we want to. God supplies the power for the impossible but we must supply the will.

Are you investing as much in building your (eternal, by the way) body as you are in staving off the deterioration of your physical body? Hope so. You get to keep that. And it can improve with age.
