GOING HOME

 
"I am indeed going to prepare a place for you, and then I shall come back to take you with Me, that where I am you also may be." —John 14:3
 

The great I Am — the awesome Creator of the world, Who has created universes and quasars millions of light-years away — God Himself wanted to adopt "little old you."

It seems unbelievable, but it's true. He paid an inestimable price for you by sending His only begotten Son to give His life. By faith, you accepted God's adoption of you. Your Father God loved, fed, protected, healed, guided, and provided for you. He was always there. Because the Father lived in heaven, you could never see Him, but the joy of your life was to talk to Him and see His wondrous works. The Spirit cried out in you "Abba!" (Gal 4:6) Your deepest desire was to some day go home and see Abba. However, that was impossible, but nothing's impossible for Jesus. He's the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Him (Jn 14:6). Everyone who comes through Him gets to go home and see Abba. Then He "shall wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain, for the former world has passed away" (Rv 21:4).

Thank You, Father, for adopting me. Thank You, Jesus, for being the Way home. Thank You, Spirit, for crying out in my heart, "Abba."

 
Prayer: Abba, I love You.
Promise: "God raised Him from the dead, and for many days thereafter Jesus appeared to those who had come up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem. These are His witnesses now before the people." —Acts 13:30-31
Praise: Sts. Nereus and Pancras cried out "Abba," threw down their arms as professional soldiers, and gave their lives over to Christ.
