Looking for a City - Ministry Videos
TEXT: Hebrews 11:13-16
At various times in our lives, we find ourselves looking for a better place. In a way, this searching can also depict a spiritual journey that many of us are on. We are searching for a place that is better than this world. We search for a better place because the condition of our current home is in such a bad state.
If the world that we live in is so terrible, what is it that we long for deep down in our hearts? Is it not to find a better place than what we have now? This yearning is one of the strongest feelings in the human heart. It is not the foolish syndrome of looking for greener grass on the other side; rather, it is a God-given inclination to find a place where we can be at perfect peace.
Just like America was a "better place" for the first European settlers in America, we also are searching for a better place called Heaven. Our passage today talks about a group of people who "desire a better country, that is, an heavenly (country)." That is what we are searching for as well. We are looking for Heaven.
Unlike our broken earth, Heaven is a place of calm and tranquility. There is no sickness, no death, no suffering, and no pain in Heaven. In Heaven, all of our needs will be supplied and all of our desires will be satisfied. Frankly, my friend, Heaven cannot be compared with anything we know on earth.
