Letter 310 – We Will Put on New Cloths

2 Corinthians 5: 1-5 TLB

 

5:1…For we know that when this tent we live in now is taken down-when we die and leave these bodies-we will have wonderful new bodies in heaven, homes that will be ours forevermore, made for us by God himself and not by human hands.

 

5:2…How weary we grow of our present bodies. That is why we look forward eagerly to the day when we shall have heavenly bodies which we shall put on like new cloths.

 

5:3…For we shall not be merely spirits without bodies.

 

5:4…These earthly bodies make us groan and sigh, but we wouldn’t like to think of dying and having no bodies at all. We want to slip into our new bodies so that these dying bodies will, as it were, be swallowed up by everlasting life.

 

5:5…This is what God has prepared for us and, as a guarantee, he has given us his Holy Spirit.
