2 Corinthians 5:5

5 He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, 1who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.

2 Corinthians 5:5 In-Context

3 if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked.
4 For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened--not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
5 He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
6 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord,
7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.
