which would enable humans to complete such an amazing task.
But not everyone was thrilled. Three men in Yemen filed a lawsuit against NASA in Yemeni court, claiming that the United States was trespassing. They claimed the planet was left to them by ancestors 3,000 years ago. They even claimed that they had the documents to prove it.
We don't know about that. But we do know that the followers of Jesus Christ can claim a much greater inheritance. Unlike the claim of the Yemeni pair, believers in Christ actually have a claim to the riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
This is the way the apostle Paul described it: "Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ..." (Romans 8:17a). "And my God
will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).
Or take this one: "...we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven not built by human hands" (2 Corinthians 5:1).
Mars? They can have it. We have Heaven!
And it's out of this world.
