Read 2 Corinthians 5:1-8.

Verse 3, “If so be that being clothed.”

1. The word “clothed” probably refers to the future spiritual body of believers; the eternal habitation in which we will reside.
2. The expression implies an earnest desire of Paul to be in that body.
3. It is the language of humility, as if it were possible that they might fail, and as if it demanded their highest care and anxiety that they might be clothed with the spiritual body in heaven.
4. “Found naked.” It means that in that future state the soul will not be naked; that is, destitute of any body or covering. The present body will be laid aside. It will return to corruption, and the spirit will ascend to God in heaven. It will be clothed there in its appropriate glorified body; and will have an appropriate habitation there. Unknown.
