Not Our Home!

“Immanuel’s Land”

“For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our city in Heaven, which is yet to come!” Hebrews 13:14

We are strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

This present world is not our home. We are coming up from the wilderness with our faces Zionward; we are traveling to the Celestial City!

Our path is rough, but the Savior sustains us.

Our pilgrimage lies through a wilderness, but faith cheers us with a view of the glorious rest of the redeemed in our Father’s house, in mansions of blessedness!

Let this consideration animate us amid the conflicts of life. In a little while we shall obtain a joyous entrance into the glorious rest above. The storms of life’s ocean will soon carry us into the haven of peace, where there is no trouble.

The language of inspiration is, “Get up, go away! For this is not your resting place, because it is defiled, it is ruined beyond all remedy!”

Your Savior, pilgrim Christian, has prepared for you a nobler rest than this polluted world!

In His Father’s house are many spacious mansions, where your happy spirit, after tasting the bitter cup of life’s sorrow, shall rest in eternal blessedness!

“For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our city in Heaven, which is yet to come!” Hebrews 13:14
