Financial experts tell us our homes are our largest asset. An average house in 1973 was 1,660 sq. ft., while in 2015 an average house was 2,687 sq. ft. Numerically, families continue to decrease in size compared to previous decades. Our homes are very important due to values, not needs. We are blessed to work, plan, and prosper while choosing a home that fits our goals. We may even be thinking of remodeling or relocating. How often do we ponder our eternal home? Heaven deserves all the attention we give our earthly homes, and more!
Heaven is a literal place. Hebrews 11:16 says, “But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country, Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.” Our hope of Heaven exceeds any dwelling we may come in contact with here. Do you desire a better place?
Heaven provides rest for the weary. Hebrews 4:9 says, “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.” We all have worked long hours to the point of being too tired to sleep. We understand fatigue, pain, and suffering. None of this exists in Heaven. Do you want to find rest from your labor?
Heaven will last forever. First Thessalonians 4:17 says, “Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” We leave the comfort of our homes frequently but we will forever be with the Lord if we do His will. Do you desire a place of permanent security?
Heaven is a better home, provides rest, and will last forever. Are you preparing for your next home?
