Luke 24:36-43 (NIV)
Jesus Appears to the Disciples
36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in their presence.
4. What reason(s) would you give for edible food in heaven? Will we all become vegetarians?
Lord thank You for suffering and dying for my sins. Thank You for including me in the resurrection of the spirit and the body. How amazing it will be to eat at your banquet celebration described in Isaiah of rich food, the best meats and the finest of wines. I know that whatever is there will be out of this world and I won’t need to avoid foods for allergies or calories and enjoy it all! How wonderful that will be! Lord, You have conquered death and I trust You with my future. Amen
