“for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose ARCHITECT and builder is God,”
Have you ever needed an architect; someone to help you design your home, office, or some other building? In the letter to the Hebrews, we’re told that Abraham set his eyes on a city whose ARCHITECT and builder was God. In other words, Abraham’s hope was not in what he would build on earth. He knew what he built wouldn’t last. He knew the heavenly Jerusalem would be perfect, and it was on that Abraham set his eyes. We do well to also remember that our earthly plans are temporal. But, like Abraham, we can look forward to the new Jerusalem, whose ARCHITECT and builder is God.
Lord God, we praise You, Architect of the eternal Jerusalem, perfect and filled with Your glory.
