Bible: 2 Corinthians 5:6-10

5:6 Therefore we are always full of courage, and we know that as long as we are alive here on earth 1  we are absent from the Lord 5:7 for we live 2  by faith, not by sight. 5:8 Thus we are full of courage and would prefer to be away 3  from the body and at home with the Lord. 5:9 So then whether we are alive 4  or away, we make it our ambition to please him. 5  5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, 6  so that each one may be paid back according to what he has done while in the body, whether good or evil. 7
