day no. 13,434: from rags to riches‏

2 Corinthians 5:4-5

While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
While a good deal of time is probably spent yearning for a body that no longer breaks down and sins, the truest desire is not to be DONE with the old body as to be unclothed and free from the body altogether, but rather to be CLOTHED more with righteousness and a body that behaves as it ought to without the influence or interruption of sin.
