Tent-Life

2 Corinthians 5:1, We Aren't Home Yet, this earth is not our home
We forget we're tents

So we attempt to build foundations in this wilderness called the world. 

God forewarned us: When the Jews were in the wilderness, they built a tent for God. They weren't in the Promised Land yet. 

Neither are we. 

"For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands" (2 Corinthians 5:1). 

By faith we deal with the unexplained suffering, confusion, injustice, disappointment, and pain of "tent-life." 

"By faith Abraham...made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents... For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God" (Hebrews 11:8-10). 

Dear Christians, we're only tents ...we're not home yet. But the Promised Land, with its forever foundation and its freedom from pain and confusion is our destination.

  1. This is great to think about, especially as we approach Easter. It's a good reminder to fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
