are but on loan to us

I have just seen the film Ghost (1990) again. And there is one phrase I don't understand clearly. In Sam's funeral, the priest says that "As we say farewell to our friend Sam Wheat, we are reminded of his kindness, his generosity, his buoyancy of spirit. All that we treasured, our loved ones, our friends, our body, our mind, are but on loan to us. We must surrender them all." Can anyone explain to me? Thank you
