May the love of family and friends give you comfort; may the love of God give you peace. 1 Corinthians 15:44b-46;49 (NASB) "If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural; then the spiritual. 49 Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we will also bear the image of the heavenly." 1 Corinthians 15:22 "For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive." Revelation 21:4-5 "...and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”
