“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens”. Body concern. It haunts us. Am I too _____ (what did you put in the space?). Am I sick? Am I old? The “I” is deceiving because that body is just the earthly tent you live in. It’s not “you”. Even the condition of your body is not “your” condition, but we think that way. “Who will deliver us from this body of death?” The scripture would call that “victory”.
