Home In Heaven

No comments :
Last vacation, I was excited to go home. I will see again my old room, will see familiar faces, will feel the comfort of home, will experience again the weather and the priceless moment with my family. It is really a nice thing if we are comfortable in a place that we occupy, a place where you can do anything, act normally and be ourselves. Its also a great feeling to say to our minds and hearts that "right here, is where I belong".

The question now is, what should we feel when we arrive into the new Jerusalem, that land of promises, that what we call Kingdom. Should we be excited? Should we think about adjustment and to prepare ourselves for new environment? Some of the things that we had might be missing or the comfort of our home will slowly diminish. One thing is for sure, that everything will be better and by that, lets just enjoy it, rejoice and be ourselves.

In Revelations 21:22-23 (22 I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.), it might incur that we wont be needing electricy, flashlight or candles as His light will be sufficient enough. Imagine a new home where locks are unnecessary, gates are always open and a place where there is no sin and death will also be absent. In this new environment, everything will be pure, holy and suffering will be a thing of the past. We have to look forward for abundant life in Christ, pure and unmarred. Same feeling of comfort in our current home will also be available in our future home and it will be permanent. It something that can really call "home" and no description can be given on this place. He is a very loving father that He personally prepared it for us.
