Psalms 67:1-3 May GOD be gracious to us and bless us and make HIS face shine upon us, that YOUR ways may be known on earth, YOUR salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, O GOD; may all the peoples praise you.
诗篇六十七：1-3 愿 上帝怜悯我们，赐福与我们，用脸光照我们，好教世界得知你的道路，万国得知你的救恩。 上帝阿，愿列邦称赞你！愿万民都称赞你！

In the resurrection we will have spiritual bodies. Our natural bodies came from Adam, our spiritual bodies come from Christ. Christ is the second Adam, offering us new bodies not subject to destruction. As Paul says: "as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man [Adam], so we shall bear the likeness of the heavenly one [Christ]" (I Corinthians 15:49).
Our spiritual bodies are Christ-like bodies. Jesus came to share with us the life in our mortal bodies so that we would also be able to share in his spiritual body. "Mere human nature," Paul says, "cannot inherit the kingdom of God" (I Corinthians 15:50). Jesus came to dress our perishable nature with imperishability and our mortal nature with immortality (see I Corinthians 15:53). Thus it is in the body that our spiritual life finds its fullest manifestation.
