What Scripture Says About Our Tent Life

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.
