哥林多書5章提到我們現在住的家（人用手築的帳篷） 被拆毀的時候（離開這肉體的家－死）, 我們將搬入不是人手所建造的家. 現今暫住於這帳篷,雖承受著壓力,不斷的呻吟嘆息; 心中切切想要搬離這帳篷, 住進神為我們預備永恆的天家.
活在這世上是靠著 ＂信＂ 不是憑著眼見,學會信靠神的應許真不容易.
Corinthians 5:6-8(哥林多後書 5:6-8)
So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.
