“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2
Home is where the heart is, hopefully when you think of the best place on Earth, it’s your home. Home is where our family lives, where love is shared , and memories are never forgotten. Often if I’m having a bad day at work, its comforts me knowing I will be “Home” soon to where I am loved and I can rest.
This is how Jesus wants us to view “Heaven” or “Gods House” as a resting place where we are welcomed and excited to go to. In ( Heaven) “My Fathers House” are many “dwelling places” (Home)
The question nobody wants to be asked is “Where are you going when you die?” I know this is a difficult question but it shouldn’t be continually ignored because of its harshness. As Christians we can take comfort in knowing Jesus is preparing a Home for us in Heaven.
For those who doubt of the existence of Heaven Jesus said “ If it were not so, I would have told you”. Jesus would have never taught us about Gods House if it didn’t exist. Knowing this truth, should give us comfort as we deal with death. Know that Jesus has overcome death at the cross and there is nothing to fear through Christ.
Jesus said “I go to prepare a place for you” , take comfort in knowing Jesus has not only defeated death for you, but is also preparing a place for you in Jesus Name Amen!
