II CORINTHIANS 5:8

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.

 

PUTTING THIS VERSE IN CONTEXT IS TO ME JOYOUS, BECAUSE PAUL IS SPEAKING OF THE HOPE WE HAVE IN LOOKING FORWARD TO RECEIVING OUR HEAVENLY BODY WHEN WE MAKE THE SHIFT FROM THIS LIFE TO THE NEXT.

HE IS SPEAKING OF WHAT WE HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO, AND HOW THAT EVEN THOUGH WE ARE TO REMAIN AS AMBASSADORS, SERVING HIS KINGDOM AS LONG AS WE ARE HERE ON EARTH, IT IS GOING TO BE IN A MUCH BETTER PLACE WHEN WE ARE ACTUALLY IN OUR ETERNAL HOME WITH HIM.

PERSONALLY, I BECOME VERY ANIMATED AT THE THOUGHT OF BEING IN THAT GLORIFIED BODY, AND IN MY HEAVENLY HOME WITH THE LORD; IT WILL BE SO MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT IS IN LIFE HERE.
