How can a salvation army officer on a sinking boat turn and say to another passenger, “Here’s my life vest, I can die better cause I know Jesus.” Matt O’Malley, CF Director in Omaha talks about what it looks like to be strangers and foreigners in this land.
Hebrews 11:23-16 13 These all died in faith, although they had not received the things that were promised. But they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth. 14 Now those who say such things make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. 15 If they were thinking about where they came from, they would have had an opportunity to return. 16 But they now desire a better place—a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
