At church yesterday in a sermon, one of the things we learned about was immortality. The Scripture reference was in 1 Corinthians 15.

Bound by our earthly nature and mortality, we humans cannot perceive God fully and as He is in our current state (Exodus 33:19-20). Mortality cannot get into Heaven (1 Corinthians 15:50); we must change clothes (1 Corinthians 15:51-54).

When Christians die, moving from this life to the next, we are just changing clothes. We’re taking off mortality and putting on the immortality that God made for us. Death loses its sting as we leave behind our old clothes and are enveloped in new ones. To help visualize the idea of immortality as clothing, the pastor pretended to be looking through his closet. “Honey, have you seen my immortality suit?”
