We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
– 2 Corinthians 5:8
I find that I am often absorbed in the stresses and pressing issues of the day so much that I can lose sight of the realities of eternity. Thankfully God doesn’t allow that to continue indefinitely. Paul lived with an ever present expectation of eternity. He looked forward with anticipation to be absent from this earthly body, and to be with the Lord in heaven.
