“…they were longing for a better country – a heavenly one…God…has prepared a city for them.” Hebrews 11:16. Jesus has promised His followers a glorious dwelling place in Heaven’s eternal mansions that are being prepared in the New Jerusalem. When we read in Revelation about that city with its multicolored walls and its gates of pearl, we gasp in wonder and amazement. Although it is described in terms of the most precious things we know, we are told only about the most commonplace features such as its walls, gates and streets. This glorious city is a literal place – the future home of the redeemed. What an exciting prospect is ours! While You prepare a place for us, Lord, prepare us for that place.
