Heaven (1)

“I am going there to prepare a place for you.”
In this devotional we stress the importance of maximizing each day: enjoying where you are on your way to where you're going. And that's good advice. But ultimately, as a redeemed child of God your greatest longing shouldn't be for that which is temporal but for that which is eternal—your heavenly home. Jesus described it this way: “In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.” Max Lucado writes: “The journey home is nice, but the journey is not the goal. I prepared part of this message on an airplane. As I looked around at fellow passengers, I saw contented people. Thanks to books, pillows, and crossword puzzles, they passed the time quite nicely. But suppose this announcement were heard: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, this flight is your final destination. We'll never land; your home is this plane, so enjoy the journey.' The passengers would become mutineers. We'd take over the cockpit and seek a landing strip. We wouldn't settle for such an idea. The journey isn't the destination. The vessel isn't the goal. Those who are content with nothing more than the joy of the journey are settling for too little satisfaction. Our hearts tell us that there's more to this life than this life. We, like E.T., lift bent fingers to the sky. We may not know where to point, but we know not to call the airplane our home.” Jesus said, “I am going there to prepare a place for you.” And there's no place on earth like it! So live with heaven in mind.
Jn 14:2 NIV
約翰福音第14章第2節 在我父的家裡有許多住處;若是沒有,我就早已告訴你們了。我去原是為你們預備地方去。 John 14:2(NIV) My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
