“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling,”
2 Corinthians 5:1-2 NIV
Growing up our family did a lot of camping. We had a giant green and white tent to shelter our family of seven.
Eventually, like all things, it wore out. Our next “tent” was a small motor home which lasted much longer and provided more amenities.
The failings of the tents that are our lives on this earth can cause grief and despair. Do you find yourself lamenting the emptiness of a creation in which the created love themselves more than their Creator? Living “in the world but not of it” causes me to long all the more for my eternal home. Aren’t you glad He has prepared a permanent house for us that is perfect and cannot be destroyed?
“Hear my prayer, Lord, and listen to my cry for help; do not be silent at my tears. For I am a foreigner residing with You, a temporary resident like all my fathers.”
Psalm 39:12 HCSB
