For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, (2 Corinthians 5:1-2 ESV)
Ибо знаем, что, когда земной наш дом, эта хижина, разрушится, мы имеем от Бога жилище на небесах, дом нерукотворенный, вечный. Оттого мы и воздыхаем, желая облечься в небесное наше жилище; (2-е Коринфянам 5:1-2 Russian)
O LORD our God, dear Father in Heaven with the Son, Holy Spirit and myriads of angelic beings – who dwell in conditions of never-ending love along with saints who obeyed your perfect will while on the earth. Help us Lord to have a deeper understanding of the home that is being prepared for those who love and obey Christ as Lord. Open the hearts of those whose hearts have grown cold toward the heavenly world that truly exists. Help all believers to live as if already in heaven so that those lost in darkness will see a ray of hope from the darkness of sin. We fervently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
