If you are a Christian that means you must make two admissions. One, that you are a foreigner on this earth and two, that you look for a permanent place of living.
Anyone living with Christian faith needs to admit that he is a stranger and a foreigner in this world. You cannot live with faith and cling to this world as if you are going to live here permanently.
The Promise To Abraham
“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” Heb. 11:8
We have a promise, just like Abraham.
Living with faith is when you do not receive the things promised, but only see these promises and welcome them from a distance. Living with faith it’s when you admit that you are a foreigner on earth. You admit that this is not your home. You are not here permanently. Your time here has a limit.
This admission means that you are looking for a country: a heavenly one. You call God, your God, for he has prepared a city for you. (Heb. 11:13-16) He has promised that permanent place. It is called the Kingdom of God and is not here. It’s in heaven.
