Our home is in heaven.
Can you see it? Perfection that our minds have difficulty imagining. The streets, the walls of the city are made of gold and precious jewels. Old is made new again. There is no more curse or fear or evil or sadness. We are in the very presence of God and his light chases away all darkness (Revelation 21-22).
Jesus has done the hard work. He came to this earth as a man, lived a life of perfect example and then gave that life in place of ours so we could live with him forever. Death could not hold its sway over him. But there’s still work to be done. The race is set before us. Satan will throw obstacles in the way and try to weigh us down but we must run the race nonetheless. “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:1-2).
The finish lies ahead with a reward far greater than any you can imagine. Your home in heaven awaits. Jesus has gladly prepared it for you. I hope to see you there.
