Our Heavenly Home

Description

The preparations God made for the first earthly home are nothing compared to the preparations He is making for our heavenly home.

If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am there you may be also (John 14:3, NKJV).

The first book in the Bible, Genesis, gives us an unforgettable picture of the Lord God. After at least five “days” of intensely creative work, He “planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. And the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye” (Gen. 2:8–9, NIV). In my mind’s eye, I can see Him on His hands and knees, grubbing in the dirt, planting trees and flowers and shrubs and grass, watering and pruning and landscaping. God Himself was the first homemaker, preparing a place for His children, Adam and Eve, that would be pleasing to the eye. We can only imagine the joyful eagerness of the divine Gardener as He presented Adam with his lovingly prepared home that was not just adequate or sufficient to meet his needs but extravagant in its lush beauty and comfort.

But the preparations made for that first earthly home... are nothing compared with the preparations being made for our heavenly home!
