Before our twins were born, my wife and I went on a vacation every year. We saw fascinating things, made new friends and ate new foods. Although we had a great time, after several days we would start thinking about going home. We wanted to be with our family and friends.
Christians experience a similar feeling. We feel that we truly do not belong here on earth, and we want to arrive at our final destination and live forever with God.
Verses 3b-4 of our Bible Reading describe what our home with God will be like. “Now God’s home is with people. He will live with them. They will be his people. God himself will be with them and will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain. All the old ways are gone.”
Stop and think today what it will be like to live forever with God. Praise and thank Him for that day when you will be home at last!
