Home Sweet Home

A beautiful ballad flowed from the radio as I drove to work one morning. No matter where the singer traveled, how much he accomplished, or how many people surrounded him, he felt alone and ached to go home.

What does home mean to you?

Maybe “home” is where you grew up. No matter how old we become, our parents may still ask, “When are you coming home?”

It could be the place you share with your spouse and children.

Your home may be where you find refuge - a “safe place to land” for you, your family, and friends. A place where they can find warmth, comfort, encouragement, acceptance, and unconditional love.

It’s been said that “home is where the heart is,” which means your true home is with the person, or in the place you love most.

Everyone deserves to have a home. Whether it’s a mansion or a shack, a home should provide shelter and protection from not only the elements, but the stress, struggles, and pain that can be experienced in the outside world.

As followers of Christ, we know that an eternal home is being prepared for us . . .

In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. (John 14:2 NIV)

But, there’s also another kind of home to be found. One that we can live in today. Right now. At this very moment, if we choose.

Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. (John 14:23 NIV)

We can find the truest sense of home—of being where we’re supposed to be—through relationship with our Lord.

How cool is that?
