Looking for the heavenly city

Hebrews Bible Background

11.18.2018 – New Testament: Heb 13.14

To read the Bible in a year, read Hebrews 13 on November 18, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

The Hebrew writer told us to go to Jesus, bearing the reproach that goes along with following Him, and then the writer explained further,

For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come (Hebrews 13.14).

Whatever we experience in life on earth, whether good or bad, it does not last, but something is coming where the good never stops. Therefore, strive for that place, the heavenly city.

Questions:

  • How much does your desire to get to heaven drive you daily?
  • Is anything more important than reaching that heavenly city?
