13 Since we have (A)the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, (B)“I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, 14 knowing that (C)he who raised the Lord Jesus (D)will raise us also with Jesus and (E)bring us with you into his presence. 15 For (F)it is all for your sake, so that as (G)grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, (H)to the glory of God.

16 So we do not lose heart. (I)Though our outer self[a] is wasting away, (J)our inner self (K)is being renewed day by day. 17 For (L)this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 (M)as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Our Heavenly Dwelling

For we know that if (N)the tent that is (O)our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, (P)a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
