Faith that Longs for a Better Country
God is faithful to his promises. Biblical history shows us that time and again. Thus our calling in the midst of suffering is to persevere in faith.
The writer of Hebrews highlights this faith by looking back at Abraham. His was a persevering faith that involved leaving without knowing where, living as a foreigner in the Promised Land, laughing at the faithfulness of God, and longing for a better country.
