Home. I love that word. For me, it conjures up so many memories. I'm taken back to the laughter-filled-family-room of my childhood home; I'm taken back to the humid summer days of the South; I imagine a hot cup of coffee on a Saturday morning with my beautiful wife, Amber sitting across from me, as our 3 beautiful kids joyfully run rampant through the house; I picture myself in the family room of my current home, curled up in front of the fire with Amber on a cold winter's night.
Home. We want it. Need it. Crave it.
In Jesus, God brought us back to our true Home. His Home. Where we've always belonged. Every human heart was made to live in an awareness of the comfort and joy afforded to us in this glorious Place.
Our journey now is discovering how things work in this New and True Home. How does Father treat us? How do we do relationships Here? How do we talk to one another? How do we live a life free of shame? How do we carry ourselves Here? How do we work here? How do we relax here?
I think this is what Jesus was inviting us to when He said,
Home has taken on new connotations for me in the last number of years. I'm reminded of the tender voice of Holy Spirit. I see myself in the family room with Father, spending the whole morning playing checkers and talking together. I see Jesus inviting me to go explore the boundless goodness of the Garden with Him. My heart has never felt safer, or more at peace since discovering all that His heart has afforded me.
There is a life available to you that is better than you could have ever dreamed or imagined. Let's take Jesus' hand and let Him show us just how good He really is.
