Northwest Trip (7)

My wife and I were very excited to drive home from our Northwest Trip. My wife was pregnant with our first child. We were even more excited to get home and prepare a room for our baby. After we arrived home, we made the room ready for our baby. Each time we looked in the room, we became excited about the birth of our child.

That is probably how Jesus felt during His last days on earth. Jesus left heaven to become human just like you and me. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and then arose from the dead. His purpose on earth was finished. He probably looked forward to being with His Father. I believe that Jesus was excited to go back to heaven to prepare a place for His people.

Jesus will return some day. We do not know when He will come back. But our Bible verses today tell us that when Jesus returns, He will take Christians back to heaven with Him. Be excited and look forward to your place in heaven with Jesus.

BIBLE VERSE: “After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back. Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I am.” John 14:3

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for preparing a place for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
