BIBLE READING: Hebrews 11:1-39
Are you looking forward to something? Perhaps the big game? The summer? Retirement? Maybe it’s as simple as looking forward to the weekend. Looking forward to something brings excitement, anticipation, and hope. Therefore, looking forward to something is important.
If anyone ever had something to look forward to, it was Abraham. He left his hometown after God requested that he go to a land that He would show him. God’s promises to Abraham were that he would become a great nation, have a great name, and that he would bless every nation on earth. Even with all of those promises from God, the Hebrew writer lets us know that Abraham was “looking forward to the city that had foundations, whose designer and builder is God” ( Hebrews 11:10).
Application: So now that you have had a moment to think about it, I ask you again: what are you looking forward to?
