OCTOBER THEME: THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME

“Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. –John 14:23

In The Secret Place: Devotions for Daily Worship, the Nov. 16 devotion, Home Sweet Home,  by Sarah Lyons, she uses John 14:23 as the “thought for the day.” She tells in the devotional of missing a flight, having to sleep in the airport, and catching a flight out the next morning.

Upon arriving home, she stated, “It felt great to be home. There really is no place like home. Jesus creates a home for those who love and obey him. It’s a home where we can feel safe and comfortable. If our earthly home can feel good to us, imagine how great a home with Jesus will be.”

Whether our home is grand or modest, there’s no place like it. The only one better is not to be found in this world; rather, it is the one Jesus prepares for us.
