Will Our Bodies Shine in Heaven?

Some people have asked me if our resurrected bodies will shine. They cite two passages: “The righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father” (Matthew 13:43) and “Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven” (Daniel 12:3, NASB).

Get into God’s Word with The Bible Project

One of the best things to come out of Portland, Oregon (where I live) in the last few years is The Bible Project, which is done by a couple of creative brothers here that know God and His Word.

So we’re partnering with The Seed Company to help fund the Esimbi project, which will bring God’s Word to 20,000 people who live in isolated areas in Karen’s beloved Cameroon. It's especially appropriate that we choose the Esimbi language project as this is the language group that Karen went to minister to in Cameroon.
