Our Everlasting City!

Our Everlasting City!

Hebrews 11:16 (WEB)

But now they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one.
Therefore God is not ashamed of them, to be called their God,
for he has prepared a city for them.

Promise: An everlasting city awaits you, for I am not ashamed to be called your God.

Our God and Father has prepared a city for us that will last forever. He has done this because He is not ashamed to be called our God. In the last half of this verse in the Amplified Bible, it says this… For that reason God is not ashamed to be called their God [even to be surnamed their God–the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob], for He has prepared a city for them. (AMP)

I love the thought that we have taken on God’s surname because He is so happy that we are His children. In Ephesians 3:14-15, the Apostle Paul says that all the Father’s family in heaven and earth derives its name directly from Him. We belong to Him and He is not ashamed of us! In Hebrews 2:11 the writer of Hebrews says that Jesus is not ashamed to call us His brothers too!

What an amazing family that we have been called into! Because of God’s great love for us, He has prepared an everlasting city for us to enjoy! How exciting is this!
