“Home”

“When I go, you will not be left alone; I will come to you.… My Father … will come to [you] and live with [you]” (John 14: 18, 23).


Think for a moment of the place you called home for the most part of your life. Maybe your parents still reside there, and your bedroom is still intact. Imagine for a moment that tomorrow you’ll be heading for home to visit and stay with you mom and dad for a couple of days. It’s been a long while since you’ve slept in that home, but still today you can’t find another place like it. You’ve called this place home for most of your life, and there will probably never be a replacement for it. There’s a feeling there that can’t be found at any other “home.” And to know that there is a room in that house which has always belonged to you and someone has gone through the trouble with all their love and care to prepare it for your return, puts a smile on your face already. Oh the sweet senses of home; whether it be fresh baked cookies or sweet breads or anything else from mom’s kitchen, the aroma always filled your room with such warmth, and love, and gave you a sense of belonging, a sense that everything is righteous and it could not be made any better. And whatever troubles you might have had was dropped off at the front door before you were welcomed in. Yes, home - you’re not there yet, but just the promise of it for tomorrow already brings you much peace and joy.

Though our homes might be different from one another’s and maybe what we ourselves call “home” also changes as our lives changes. But regardless of these differences in looks, smells, location, my thought is that we all can still imagine that idealistic image and feeling of ‘home sweet home’. Now with that image and feeling attached to our home on earth, how more wonderful is it for you if Jesus told you His Father has kept a room for you in God’s home? Before Jesus left our Earth he said, “There are many rooms in my Father’s house, and I am going to prepare a room for you. And … I will come back and take you to [there] myself [when the day comes], so that you will be where I am. You know the way that leads to where I am going…. I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me” (John 14:2, 3, 6). Isn’t that awesome? If our own earthly home and parents can evoke such great feeling of love, joy, and warmth in our hearts when thought of, imagines how we’d feel when we go home to God? May you find comfort with this knowledge, if you have a loved one who has gone home to our Father. I can only imagine the over flowing feelings of warmth, sweetness, love taking over my entire being. It’s beyond my small mind’s comprehension.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
