The life of the Patriarchs we have been studying throughout the book of Genesis lays out the fact that they were living in a place that was promised to them, yet they were still foreigners. We will see throughout the life of Joseph that he also lived as a foreigner. It reminds me of Hebrews 11:8-10, which says (in NLT), "It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going. And even when he reached the land God promised him, he lived there by faith—for he was like a foreigner, living in tents. And so did Isaac and Jacob, who inherited the same promise. Abraham was confidently looking forward to a city with eternal foundations, a city designed and built by God." When we feel like foreigners, we can remember that this is not our true home. Our home is where we have our hope staked in: our home with Jesus. That is our home!
