John 14:3

Published December 13, 2020 by Pastor Ron West in Pastor's Thoughts

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

Someday those of us who have trusted Jesus Christ as our personal Savior will leave this life and go to the place He has prepared for us (John 14:3). The journey may be difficult or uncomfortable, but we certainly look forward to the final destination. Composer Don Wyrtzen wrote the music for a wonderful song that pictures our earthly life as a “tempestuous sea.” It ends with these words:

Just think of stepping on shore—and finding it heaven!
Of touching a hand—and finding it God’s!
Of breathing new air—and finding it celestial!
Of waking up in glory—and finding it home!

When we see Jesus face to face for the first time—we will be “finally home.”
