2 Corinthians 5:6-9
New International Version
6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 For we live by faith, not by sight.(A) 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.(B) 9 So we make it our goal to please him,(C) whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
