The Right Perspective

Description

Do you have your eye on the heavenly city?

In today’s devotional, I want to look at the Scripture, Hebrews 11:13-16,

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.  For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland.  And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.  But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country.  Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.

It is so easy to remember “the good old days,” but with selective memory, not really remembering the pain and struggle.

I want you to see an important perspective the heroes of the faith in Hebrews 11 provide for us.  What did they do?  They looked to the future.  These men and women of God walked as strangers and pilgrims on this earth because they looked for a better homeland, a better place, which God would prepare for them.

I’m telling you, there is a better homeland than our world today.  There is a city called the New Jerusalem. There is a place that does not need the light of the sun nor the light of the moon because the Lamb—Jesus Christ—is its light. 

In that city, every tear is wiped away.  There is no more sin, no more sickness, no more pain, and no more suffering. 

Like the heroes of old, I have my eye on that heavenly city.  It is better than anything we have here!  I pray that this will be your perspective today…and every day…as well.
