August 21

“Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”  Hebrews 11:16 (NIV)

I am impressed by the statement that God is not ashamed to be called their God. This is a significant statement that is good for us today, too. If you have accepted God’s offer of eternal life, then you are His today. But it is also true that He is yours. You can know that you have a God in heaven. And you can call Him yours and He will agree. What is it that makes this true? It is because you are living for eternity – with eternity’s values in view. So, if you are looking for a heavenly city, then you are included in the words of this verse.
