Desiring Our Heavenly Habitation

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 5.
After saying that when we die, we receive something new from God, Paul then said, “For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked” (Second Corinthians 5:2, 3). Here he actually said that he looked forward to the time of death because it meant receiving something special from God.
Truly, all of Christianity and our whole lifetimes prepare us for the time we leave our bodies behind and join the Lord. Therefore, let us not fear death, but welcome it when it comes.
