By an act of faith, Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place that would become his home. When he left he had no idea where he was going. By an act of faith, he lived in the country promised him, lived as a stranger camping in tents. Isaac and Jacob did the same, living under the same promise. Abraham did it by keeping his eye on an unseen city with real, eternal foundations—the City designed and built by God.
Hebrews 11:8‭-‬10 MSG

Until you have learned to look away from the earthly possessions with all their passing glory you cannot catch the glimpse of your heavenly inheritance with its lasting glory. Also, you cannot look away from earthly riches until you have come to know that only in Christ, you have an assured inheritance which cannot be ravaged by aliens armies, infected by the pests and insects, damaged by drought and which can never depreciate in its value no matter the years or the current economic situation globally.

As Christ’s disciple, you are not just a child of God. You are an heir: heir of salvation, heir of the Kingdom, heir according to the hope of eternal life. What you will come into in Christ is more significant than what you have already. The present world and everything in it will soon fade away someday.

Therefore, stop looking around in this world. Stop every inordinate desire and quest for things that are temporal and consumable at the expense of your glorious inheritance in Christ that is eternal. Instead, start looking above and begin to labour to enter into the City whose Architect and Builder is God, and at last, you will not be disappointed. Good morning and enjoy a refreshing weekend.

Your brother,
