Today's Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:1-10
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Date Written: Around AD 57)
1. For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down
(that is, when we die and leave this earthly body),
we will have a house in heaven,
an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.
2. We grow weary in our present bodies,
and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing.
3. For we will put on heavenly bodies;
we will not be spirits without bodies.
4. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh,
but it's not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us.
Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that
these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.
5. God himself has prepared us for this,
and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
6. So we are always confident,
even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies
we are not at home with the Lord.
7. For we live by believing and not by seeing.
8. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather
be away from these earthly bodies,
for then we will be at home with the Lord.
9. So whether we are here in this body or away
from this body, our goal is to please him.
10. For we must all stand before Christ to be judged.
We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good
or evil we have done in this earthly body.
2 Corinthians 5:1-10 NLT
