On Step Further
Out text will come from Hebrews 11:9-10. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
Abraham was promised the land of Palestine, called the land of Canaan and although he never got to claim it all, he sojourned up and down in it.
Our text says that he looked for a city, but he never found it. He looked for the city that God built and founded. Each day he perhaps thought that he would eventually come across it. He never did, however, each day he came one step closer to it and one step further from his earthy dwelling.
The lesson to us is clear.
Each day as we travel in this world we are one step closer to our heavenly home and one step further from our earthly home.
May God help you to daily take one step closer to your heavenly home and one step further from your earthly home.
P.S. We as saved people will make it home.
