Well I’m staring at the last week in this house that we’ve loved to live in. It’s been a long journey trying to sell it. Ten arduous months of open houses, last-minute showings, and meals in the car while trying to spy on the potential buyers.
Kerry said something extremely profound during the process. She said, “Craig, the moment we decided to move this house no longer was our home.” It was true. It felt more like a museum or hotel. Something was missing. We were yearning for a new home… one that we can’t wait to move into at the end of this week.
The Bible talks about the same thing. The moment that we decide to follow Christ there is a new home that we look forward to. We can enjoy life and all of the blessings that God gives us here right now but there is a new place that we can’t wait to get to (see 2Corinthians 5:1-5).
Yep. Sure loved this house. It was a beautiful house and I’ll never forget it… but I just can’t wait to finally get HOME!!!
At least that’s how I see it.
