Our Earthly Tabernacle

2 Corinthians 5:1 KJV For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
 
Today, we begin to look at a passage where we are taught how we ought to be looking forward to heaven nd not be so focused on this life on the earth. We often think what the worst thing could be that could happen to us. As we think about these things, they scared us. But the worst thing that could happen to us on this earth is death. If we are saved, death simply means that our spirit and soul has left our body, our earthly tabernacle, and has gone to heaven. In heaven, we will be given an eternal glorified body. We will learn more about this in the coming days.
