The City of God


Abraham was not looking for a city in heaven; he was looking for a city from heaven. Abraham was looking on earth for something that would come from heaven

The better city Abraham was looking for, Jesus would build!… If in the ancient world all roads lead to Rome, in the Bible all faith journeys lead to Jesus. For those who long for a better way to be human and look for a better way to structure human society, Jesus is the searcher’s end.
