In my daily reading I notice this small connection:
And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan. (Gen 37:1).
By faith he lived in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. (Heb 11:9,10).
We too are strangers in this world, living in tents until the day we see the city of God.
And all these, uthough commended through their faith, udid not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, vthat apart from us they should not be made perfect. (Heb 11: 39,40).
