2 Corinthians 5:1-8

1 For we know that if the earthly house of our tent is dissolved, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal, in the heavens.  2 For most assuredly in this we groan, longing to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven;  3 if so be that being clothed we will not be found naked.  4 For indeed we who are in this tent do groan, being burdened; not that we desire to be unclothed, but that we desire to be clothed, that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.  5 Now he who made us for this very thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit.

6 Being therefore always of good courage, and knowing that, while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord;  7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.  8 We are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be at home with the Lord.
