5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who 1gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.

2 Corinthians 5:5 In-Context

3 inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked.
4 For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life.
5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.
6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord -
7 for we walk by faith, not by sight -
