Architect

Fun to Think About

01/20/2023

Have you ever needed an architect; someone to help you design your home, office, or some other building? In Hebrews 11:10, we’re told that Abraham needed an architect, and guess who he sought? He “

was looking for the city which has foundations, whose ARCHITECT and builder is God.  

Isn’t that fun to think about?!  Abraham. Looking. For a city built by God. It is amazing! And, do you recall what Jesus told the disciples in John 14:2? “I go to prepare a place for you.” Jesus is preparing a place for us! We can learn from Abraham. What can we learn? To not set our hope on what we can build on earth; be it a house, career, or whatever. That’s not where we’ll find our true life and joy. Those things are temporal. Jesus tells us not to store up treasures on earth, but rather to store up treasure in heaven. (Matthew 6:19-21) How do we do that? We set our minds on the things above. (Colossians 3:2) We love God first and foremost above all. (Exodus 20:3) If we realize we’ve been focused on building a life for ourselves on earth rather than building up the kingdom of God, it’s not too late to make the switch to a heavenly focus.

Jesus, we praise You, our Lord and Architect of our salvation. Fill us with a renewed awe that You are preparing a place for us. Help us focus more on You. Teach us ways we can set our minds on you.

Have you ever needed an architect; someone to help you design your home, office, or some other building? In Hebrews 11:10, we’re told that Abraham needed an architect and guess who he sought? He “was looking for the city which has foundations, whose ARCHITECT and builder is God.”  Isn’t that fun to think about?!  Abraham. Looking. For a city built by God. It is just so cool!  And, that’s what Jesus is doing. He said He was going to prepare a place for us! We can learn from ole Abe. What can we learn? To not set our hope on what we can build on earth; be it a house, career, whatever. That’s not where we’ll find our true life and joy. It’s all temporal. Fluff. Jesus tells us not to store up treasures here, but rather to store up treasure in heaven. (Matthew 6:19-21) How do we do that? If we don’t know, it’s about time we figure it out!

Lord God, we praise You, our Savior and Architect of the eternal Jerusalem, perfect and filled with Your glory. We’ll be amazed seeing Your glory when we arrive. Can’t wait!

Praise to Our ARCHITECT

01/18/2018

 “for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose ARCHITECT and builder is God,”

Hebrews 11:10

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.

 “for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God,”

Hebrews 11:10

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 had his eyes on a city who whose architect and builder was God. In other words, Abraham’s hope was not in what he would accomplish on earth. He knew his plans would have flaws and what he built would not last. He knew that 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 and have flaws. But, like Abraham, we can look forward to the new Jerusalem, whose architect and builder is God.

Lord God, I praise You, Architect of the heavenly Jerusalem that will be perfect and filled with Your glory.
