Deuteronomy 23:9-24:22; Jonah 1:1-2:10; Luke 12:41-59

For he (Abraham) looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Hebrews 11:10

Heaven is a glorious anticipation for the Christian. It is viewed as a city in the above verse. Cities are places of activity, buildings, music, sport and are certainly not boring. Yet Heaven is also viewed as a country (Heb. 11:16) and that reminds us of variety (mountains, rivers) and beauty. It is also considered a home (John 14:4) and homes are places of security, familiarity and friendship. What a glory Heaven is: activity, beauty and loved ones. We thank God that this is our anticipation through His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. —Paul Young

There is a land that is fairer than day, and by faith we can see it afar;
For the Father waits over the way to prepare us a dwelling place there. —Sanford Fillmore Bennett
