True Home!
Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson

John 14:2-4

"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. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going."

An elderly woman was as thrilled as a young schoolgirl. Her brother was taking her back to visit the old family home she had not seen since she was a young girl. They were looking for Kentucky Street. It didn’t seem to be there any longer, but then they saw the sign. What had seemed to be a broad boulevard when they were young, now looked more like a lane.

As they drove down the street they noticed that the small homes were neat and had been well cared for. They were becoming more and more optimistic as they neared the address for the family home.

Their hopes were dashed when they realized that there was no longer a house where their family home had once stood. Instead there was a large vegetable garden.

They noticed a man sitting on his porch nearby and asked him if he knew what had happened to the house that had once been there. He told them a wealthy man had decided he wanted a garden more than the old house, so he tore it down.

There was sadness in the hearts of the siblings as they drove away from their old neighborhood. Everything had changed. They were not the young kids they had been so long ago. The neighbors were all different and the house that had lived in their memories for so many years was no longer there.

They stopped at a small café to discuss what they had just experienced. It suddenly dawn on them that this world is really not our home. The woman spoke for both of them: "You know, these earthly abodes where we have lived can crumble or be bulldozed. Our bodies are destined to also be destroyed. But since both of us know the Lord as our personal Savior, our true home is waiting for us. We have not seen it yet, but it is being prepared just for us!"

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
