2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1
New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition
13 But just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with scripture—“I believed, and so I spoke”—we also believe, and therefore we also speak,(A) 14 because we know that the one who raised Jesus[a] will also raise us with Jesus and will present us with you in his presence.(B) 15 Indeed, everything is for your sake, so that grace, when it has extended to more and more people, may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.
Living by Faith
16 So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.(C) 17 For our slight, momentary affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure,(D) 18 because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen, for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.(E)
5 For we know that, if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.(F)
