  1. Earthly Tents




Paul wrote these words about heaven: 

“Now we know that if the earthly tent [physical body] 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 with our heavenly dwelling.” 2 Cor. 5:1-2 (NIV)

Where do we get that desire?

“Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Cor. 5:5-7 (NIV) 

We will never be at home until we share eternal life with our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. God designed us to be homesick for heaven.
