Augustine: nothing to worry about

Monday, October 14, 2019
    But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
    —Philippians 3:20-21 (NIV)
    At the resurrection the substance of our bodies, however disintegrated, will be united. We must not fear that the omnipotence of God cannot recall all the particles that have been consumed by fire or by beast, or dissolved into dust and ashes, or decomposed into water, or evaporated into air.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), The City of God, v. II, Marcus Dods, ed., as vol. 2 of The Works of Aurelius Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, Edinbugh: T & T Clark, 1871, XII.xx, p. 515 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 4:14; Isa. 26:19; John 11:25-26; Rom. 8:11; 1 Cor. 6:14; 2 Cor. 5:1-4; Phil. 3:20-21; 1 Thess. 4:14-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in You is our eternal hope.
