Our Eternal Home

By   •   February 17   •   Topics: ,


What kind of place is Heaven? First, Heaven is home. The Bible takes the word “home” with all of its tender associations and with all of its sacred memories and tells us that Heaven is home. Second, Heaven is a home which is permanent. We have the promise of a home where Christ’s followers will remain forever. Third, the Bible teaches that Heaven is a home which is beautiful beyond every imagination. Heaven could not help but be so, because God is a God of beauty. Fourth, the Bible teaches that Heaven will be a home which is happy, because there will be nothing to make it sad. In Heaven families and friends will be reunited. God’s house will be a happy home because Christ will be there. He will be the center of Heaven. To Him all hearts will turn, and upon Him all eyes will rest.

Prayer for the day

As I think of the promise of an eternal home with You and the reunion with my loved ones—I rejoice!

    I hold onto this life every day with all I am for my husband and two kids. My son died of a sudden and unexpected heart attack on Oct. 14, 2012, one week after turning 18. He was so close to God and was almost as perfect as a human can be. I live and do my work until I can join him and my other loved ones. He never wanted to be away from his family. I know he’s with God.

    1. Ralph Buddemeyer says:

      Jamie; your statement hit like a ton of bricks. Please know that you have brothers and sisters out here who care about you, your husband, and your family. Not many of us know what you’re going through but we do care, a great deal, and I’ve already started praying for you.

    2. Valerie A. Gordon-Tate says:

      My grandson passed at 18 y.o. after fighting for his life for many years. Yet it was still unexpected. This was 20 days after his grandfather had passed. I’m a living witness that if you hold on to God, He will take the pain out with His love, peace and assurance through The One, who is well acquainted with our suffering, Jesus Christ His Son. Praying for you and know that you are loved beyond measure. Look forward to meeting you, If not here, then Heaven.

    3. Sandy says:

      Janie, my heart goes out to you. I cannot imagine what you must be going through, but wanted you to know I stopped to pray for you and your family. May you sense God’ s presence,peace and comfort in the day’s ahead.
