Hebrews 11:9-10 ESV
By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.
Abraham journeyed through the desert landscape to reach the promised land. We journey through the landscape of the world on our way to a different place, one that is with God. We share the same journey to be with Him.
We live in these tents of mortal flesh as we walk towards the light until we finally reach that destination.
We will descend from heaven as the new Jerusalem, the city of light no longer hidden, but shining bright for all the world to see.
