For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God. (Hebrews 11:10 ESV)
Meditate and Digest: Are You Coming?
This wonderful chapter of Hebrews describes the astounding faith of some of the people of God. Here, it talks of Abraham. Abraham left his home to faithfully follow God. He lived a great life, but it was not at all absent of difficulty; yet he always pressed forward. Why?
Abraham was looking ahead to the promise that you and I have in Christ. The Church of Christ is this city whose designer and builder is God. Our part is to dig in our heels, like Abraham, deep into the foundation of Jesus, our Rock, and to hold and build each other lovingly in Christ.
We are a work in progress, but God is our Builder and Designer. He will surely finish this work. He will present us to this world one day, when we are all ready. Will you allow Him to shape you and move you into your place today? Our city depends on you and all creation is waiting.
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19 ESV)
