" For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." 2 Corinth 4:16-18; 5:1-8
