“For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.” Hebrews 13:14 (NIV)
So much of our time and effort is expended on things that are not eternal, but we need to be reminded that there is a life after this. These words were written a long time ago. Believers in the Lord Jesus then were thinking of His promise to prepare a place for them in heaven. They looked forward to His coming to take them to the place he said he was preparing. They have long since gone on to their reward and we continue to look for that city. We do need to take care of daily tasks, but we should always remember that this is not our eternal home. The place Jesus is preparing is an enduring city. It will endure forever and ever.
