“For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:” (II Corinthians 5:2)
Our most inward selves yearn for spiritual being. Our hearts continue to hope for that which truly satisfies and settles us into ourselves. Mortals may seek material things, material accomplishments, material success and possessions. But this seeking can never deeply satisfy us. We want more and we deserve more.
The spiritual clothing is that heavenly vesture that is always whole and holy, always sufficient to warm us and beautify us, because it has no flaw in it, no limit to it. And this heavenly garment fits us, for it is the very truth about us. It is God’s graceful protecting and adorning, His idea created to perfection and carried out with elegant ease.
The material body that we seem to be confined to has nothing to do with the “house,” that temple of being that is our true abiding place. This state of being contains every right quality, with no possibility of loss, a precision that assures comfort as well as loveliness and joy. This house, this heavenly body and life, is a perfect fit and our only real condition and status. We yearn for this place, this perfect oneness with God, and our plea is met with the Truth: you are there!
