Hebrews 11:16 (NLT)

16 But they were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.


The great Old Testament heroes received promises and encouragement in spite of the clouded picture of the future. It was like they had a few puzzle pieces and were waiting to see all of the pieces assembled.

The whole time, Jesus was writing the story and setting the stage for his appearance and eternal kingdom.

Walking in the light as he is in the light. One foot in front of the other, taking the next indicated step….

Standing on the promises and trying not to merely “sit on the premises.”
