A Home Prepared for Us
Our Lord Jesus told his disciples during his earthly ministry that he did not have a place to lay his head. (Matthew 8:20). And Paul described some of those who were in service for Christ as being homeless. (1 Corinthians 4:11). Yet, Jesus promised that he was going to prepare a home for them (including us).
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:1-3).
Before his death, Jesus comforted his disciples with the promise that he would go to provide a place for them. The most beautiful part was his assurance that he would return for them and receive them unto himself.
Considering mansions by the world’s standards, I know they don’t even come close to the mansions prepared for the saints in heaven. No matter how spectacular the mansions in our Father’s house, dwelling with Jesus will be the most beautiful habitation of all. Welcomed into heaven by the Way, the Truth, and the Life will be the culmination of the hope we have in Christ.
