Homecoming is a happy occasion. We were so excited to see Greg and Patrick as they got off the plane in Fredericton this morning....and they were so excited to be home.....home from Bolivia......to their OTHER home that is!
Can you imagine the joy in heaven when Jesus, Son of God, having completed His work on earth, returned home in triumph. Jesus’ ascension, 40 days after His resurrection, marked His heavenly homecoming.
But Jesus' ascension was more than a homecoming. This event was to have a sequel. Before He left, He promised to return, saying: “If I go to 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 14:3). As the old hymn says, "What a day of rejoicing that will be" and "When we all see Jesus, we'll sing and shout the victory!" We will be "home where we belong"!
PRAYER: Thank You, O Lord, for the home we have to live in here on earth and to share with family and friends. And thank You for the eternal home that has been prepared for us by our Savior, Jesus Christ! Amen
