If they wanted to, they could have gone back to the good things of this world. But they didn't want to. They were living for heaven And now God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has made a heavenly city for them. Hebrews 11:15-16 TLB
“Dear brothers, you are only visitors here. Since your real home is in heaven, I beg you to keep away from the evil pleasures of this world; they are not for you, for they fight against your very souls” (1 Peter 2:11 TLB).
