Abraham lived by Faith.
By the direction of God, Abram set out from his idolatrous homeland (Genesis 12:1-4) to an unknown destination. He was obedient and travelled by faith. He embraced the promises of God by faith.
From Ur to Canaan
Leaving the place of sin and unbelief, Abram, now Abraham, gave up his past to embrace the future. Isaac and Jacob lived with Abraham in tents, as aliens and strangers. They lived in a land promised them, yet they never possessed it as their own, apart from where Sarah was buried. They were heirs to an earthly Promise never possessed in their life time. They all died with their eyes fixed on that Heavenly city which every Believer in Christ should look to.
Heaven is Your Home.
If you belong to Jesus, this world is not your home. Lift up your eyes to higher ground, there is a better place to come. Trust in the Living God, endure with perseverance and be steadfast. Christ within you is the hope of glory. Grace and Peace to you.
