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.
That is why we live by believing and not by seeing.
Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord.
So our aim is to please him always, whether we are here in this body or away from this body.
