Sunday Morning | 2 Corinthians 5:1-5 | Pastor Steve Wainright | Listen
“For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” -2 Corinthians 5:1
In this earthly tent, we groan because of the sin that has effected our bodies, but for the child of God, this is only temporal. We have a house built by God to look forward to, a resurrection body that is eternally permanent.
Assurance that the Resurrection will happen: God has given us a down payment, guaranteeing that it will be done. His down payment iss the Spirit dwelling within us. (vs. 5; Ephesians 1:14)
