Assurance of the Resurrection
Paul’s Hope of Eternal Glory

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:1 - For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:2 - For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:3 - if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:4 - For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:5 - Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:6 - So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:7 - For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:8 - We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
The Judgment Seat of Christ

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:9 - Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:10 - For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:11 - Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.
Be Reconciled to God

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:12 - For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:13 - For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:14 - For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:15 - and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:16 - Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:18 - Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:19 - that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:20 - Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:21 - For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
