2 Corinthians 5:6; 2 Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:20

So we are always of good courage. We know that rwhile we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord,

Yes, we are of good courage, and we uwould rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

20 as it is my eager expectation and hope ithat I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full jcourage now as always Christ kwill be honored in my body, lwhether by life or by death.
