…never give up…
our spirits are being renewed every day.
…don’t look at the troubles we can see now;
rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen.
For the things we see now will soon be gone,
but the things we cannot see will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:16,18
Satan, who is the god of this world,
has blinded the eyes of those who don’t believe.
They are unable to see
the glorious light of the Good News.
They don’t understand this message
about the glory of Christ,
who is the exact likeness of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4
…He has identified us as his own
by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts
as the first installment
that guarantees everything he has promised us.
2 Corinthians 1:22
the son of God,
does not waver
between “Yes” and “No.”
…he always does what he says.
2 Corinthians 1:19
He comforts us in all our troubles
so that we can comfort others.
When they are troubled,
we will be able to give them
the same comfort God has given us.
2 Corinthians 1:4
Be on guard.
Stand firm in the faith.
And do everything with love.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Our dying bodies must be transformed
into bodies that will never die,
our mortal bodies must be transformed
into immortal bodies.
this Scripture will be fulfilled:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
1 Corinthians 15:53-55
…let me reveal to you a wonderful secret.
We will not all die,
but we will all be transformed!
It will happen in a moment,
in the blink of an eye,
when the last trumpet is blown.
For when the trumpet sounds,
those who have died
will be raised to live forever.
And we who are living
will also be transformed.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
…Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground
when we die,
but they will be raised
to live forever.
1 Corinthians 15:42
