“By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise” Hebrews 11:9.
Firstly, true faith enables us to live as “strangers” in a sinful world. We can’t be at home in a sin-infested environment! We don’t quite fit in. Secondly, faith enables us to live “in tents” in the natural world. We can’t settle for this! Our spirit-man knows better. Sadly, often we live as though heaven is temporary & this life is permanent. We treat heavenly matters lightly and earthly things seriously. However, faith people have a higher value system & greater expectations.
