2 Kings 8:1-29; Jeremiah 42:7-43:13; Hebrews 11:1-16

For we know if our earthly house of this tabernacle (tent) were
dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with
hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1

We have a glorious prospect that is certain and sure. In this verse
Paul likens our bodies to a tent. While a tent is good at times, it is
only used for a short time. Many older saints are passing through
difficult times. Their “tents” are giving them all kinds of problems
and need lots of care. Dear friend, remember, your body is only
temporal. A new house is waiting which will remain in perfect
condition forever. What a day that will be! —Jim Paul

Oh to pass through the gateway to glory,
To escape from this prison of clay,
To exchange the dark night for the dawning,
And the light of the glorious day. —Margaret L. McDonald
