Sermon Text: Hebrews 11:13-16

In preparation for morning worship, consider these words from Dr. Michael Horton:

Jesus will finally demonstrate his lordship to all people when the dead are raised at the end of the age. Heaven is unspeakably wonderful, but it is not as good as it gets. On resurrection morning, the whole earth will rejoice as it shares with the children of God in their release from bondage to decay, exploitation, bloodshed, and injustice. The whole creation-the earth and its Milky Way galaxy, all the way to the millions of galaxies that have yet to be discovered-will share in this resurrection life that never ends. Heaven is not the opposite of earth. It is not an airy existence that we are promised but an earthy society of love in the presence of the triune God. (Core Christianity: Finding Yourself in God's Story, p.153)
