|Here's our Dream Home! A lil cabin out in the woods by a winding stream with deer drinking from the cool fresh water as the sun sets slowly over the mountain. Doesn't that sound peaceful and homey? This lil cabin has been around for a long time. However, it will one day deteriorate.
Actually we already have a property reserved for us. It's a beautiful place just over the sunset mountains. We haven't seen it yet, but we are told it is more beautiful than we could every imagine. It's been paid for and reserved. You can have one too. Just read the instructions below. Speak to the Realtor Who owns it all. He will make a reservation for you too.
Home, that’s the place we want to go for refuge after a long tiring day at work, or a hectic day on the road, or even a joyous vacation. We are glad to be home, where things are comfortable and familiar to our own choosing and compatibility.
Home is where you can be “yourself”; take off the masks and “let your hair down!”. It’s a place away from all the ‘noise’ of the world; away from schedules, demands, crowds and noise. You’re saying oh yeah! I have noise at home. I have demands at home. Yes, we all do, but they are from our own choices. It can still be a place of quiet rest and peace.
Did you know that God wants to be at home with you? Well, He does. He wants to be with you, not just for a weekend vacation, or a special occasion, or on Sunday. God loves you so much He wants to be with you, walk with you every day, everywhere you go.
Jesus replied, “ All those who love Me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and live with them.” Jn 14:23
Jesus wants to be with us ALL the time. Acts 17:28 “For in Him we live and move and exist…”
Jn 17 Jesus pleads with His Father for His desire is for us to be One with Him and the Father as they are One, that we may be One in them. Jesus is talking to His Father about you right now, because He wants to live with you and you with Him.
Yes, it’s possible to have Christ “at home” in our hearts. Paul prays for that for Ephesian believers (ephes 3:17). That’s the place Jesus wants to be—in your heart, that comfortable, peaceful place when He is there with you. Jn 14:27 Jesus says His peace He will leave with you. His peace He will give you.
You don’t have to be perfect! Rom 3:23 says we have all sinned and come short of God’s glory and the payment for our sin is death, but God has given us the Gift of eternal life thru JESUS even NOW! (rom 6:23). It’s FREE! Ephes 2:8 We are saved by His grace. No! My friend, you, I can’t earn this gift. We can’t pay for His home (and guess what, no taxes or upkeep either!)
Invite Him in! He will be your Friend, Savior, Redeemer, Counselor, Great Physician, your King. He is knocking at your door right now. Rev 3:20. He wants to come in and eat with you and to abide with you now and always.
He wants to give you an abundant life full of joy. Jn 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” What better deal can you get than that!
Do you want a peaceful home? A home where you can rest quietly and feel full of life too! A home where Someone will listen to your trials, your successes, your sorrows, your joys? Make your home HIS home and You will have this and more. In fact, if you make your home, Jesus home by responding to that knock at your heart’s door, He will invite you to His eternal home too. (Jn 14:1-3)He’s preparing a place for you who believe in Him. And, His home is filled with mansions on streets of gold with no more tears or sorrow, no more sickness or death. (rev 21:4). A wonderful place beyond our wildest dreams--A place which has not entered into the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him. (I Cor 2:9)
So in Jesus own words, “Come. And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.” (rev 22:17)
As many as receive JESUS to you, to me, God gives the power to become His children if we believe on the Name of JESUS! (Jn 1:12) Come on! Give Him your home and He will give you His! The deal is out of this world! He is knocking right now at your heart’s home door. Just have this lil’ talk with Jesus.
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the dorr of my heart/my home and life. I receive you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me now and inviting me to Your Home for Eternity! Amen
