Tuesday, October 4

He was awaiting the city having real foundations, whose designer and builder is God.—Heb. 11:10.


Abraham willingly left the comfortable lifestyle available to him in the city of Ur. Why? Because he was awaiting “the city having real foundations.” (Heb. 11:8-10, 16) The city that Abraham awaited is God’s Kingdom. That Kingdom is made up of Jesus Christ and 144,000 anointed Christians. Paul refers to the Kingdom as “a city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem.” (Heb. 12:22; Rev. 5:8-10; 14:1) Jesus taught his disciples to pray for this same Kingdom, asking that it come so that God’s will can take place on earth as it does in heaven. (Matt. 6:10) Did Abraham know the details of how God’s Kingdom would be structured? No. For many centuries, those details were a “sacred secret.” (Eph. 1:8-10; Col. 1:26, 27) But Abraham did know that some of his offspring would become kings. Jehovah had specifically made that promise to him.—Gen. 17:1, 2, 6. w20.08 2-3 ¶2-4

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

Focus on the future. ‘Keep busy—try to use your life doing something for others. This will help us to find joy.’” What practical advice it is to stay busy in doing good for others and to “rejoice in the hope”!—Rom. 12:12. Soon we will no longer need to wait for the city having real foundations to take full control of all the earth. We can be if you, like Abraham, are willing to make sacrifices for God’s Kingdom, if you keep your faith despite problems, and if you learn to wait patiently on Jehovah.—Read Micah 7:7<w20 August
