Our Heavenly Home Feb 22 2012
"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." - John 14:3
What do you suppose heaven is like? I think most of us have our preconceived ideas about it to some extent.
The most common image is a place of clouds where people wear white robes and halos, and do nothing except play harps with goofy smiles on their faces. Well, that certainly is NOT what it is like. What a bore!
But, what is heaven really like? Jesus spoke very little of it, but He did say this, "In My Father's house are many dwelling places. I go to prepare a place for you." What is heaven like? It's like home, with a loving Father. It's a place of security, a permanent place to live, and a place of refuge. A place where there is no sorrow, no pain, but rejoicing and praise for our Heavenly Father. There's a longing within all of us to find home. Heaven is like home with a Father and loved ones as they're supposed to be.
How can you be sure you'll get to that home? Is there a map or rules to follow? No, it comes through a person, Jesus Christ. As He talked about a heavenly home, He added that He is the only way for us to truly come home.
