“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.
