home where I belong

“Home” a word that’s been on my mind a lot over the years, and even more so of late for so many reasons. I’ll just mention a couple here. Not only do we need to move because we have outgrown our home, but it also needs major fixing; falling apart. I also have to get my sons out and working on their careers and this place is limited. But in all this, most of all, the home that I want for us is to be at home in heaven with our Lord & Saviour. This world belongs to the enemy, which is why things are the way things are with all the war, hate, confusion and pain. (Matthew 4:8-10)

And I don’t like it here one bit.

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: —Colossians 3:1-10

But as I wait for that blessed day or whatever may come my way, and the decisions I’ll have to make here soon. I will remember:

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: —Philippians 3:20

conversation//G4175; politeuma: a form of government, citizenship
