As homemakers we dedicate our lives to home. Our title aptly describes what we do, "make home". Through meals, laundry, sweeping, gardening, kissing boo-boos, and a million other very ordinary ways we are cultivating a place to belong.
Did you know that God does the same for us? The God of the universe, the all powerful Creator of everything that exists, entered into our ordinariness to make a way for us to be at home in His presence forever.
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, entered into our earthly home....
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
to make a way for us to enter into His heavenly Home...
“Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also.” John 14:1-3
Jesus Himself is the Way Home....
Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will also know my Father." John 14:6
Jesus answered, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. John 14:23
The Home we have in God through the saving life, death and resurrection of Jesus is eternal, not even death can keep us from this Home.
For we know that if our earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal dwelling in the heavens, not made with hands. 2 Corinthians 5:1
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Revelation 21:3-5
Have you found your Forever Home in Jesus?
Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:30-31
