#4617 – Faith in the Eternal

Good morning people who are just passing through this natural life

Hebrews 11:9-10 NIV By faith he (Abraham) made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

By faith, Abraham lived like a foreigner in the land that God had promised him, because he knew that this physical life was not the eternal life that awaited him with God.

Sometimes we think that when we arrive at the place of fulfilment of what God has promised us here on earth, that is the culmination of what it is all about. It’s not!

The best here on earth naturally, is nothing compared to the future hope of endless eternal life in God and with God in heavenly places!! Faith knows this, and faith lives with this as our focus.

Jesus made it clear when He declared the following:

John 14:2-3 NIV My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

Oh the glory of what awaits us! Oh the glory of what God is preparing for us!

Keep this as the focus and fuel of your faith in God.
