“In My Father’s house are many rooms.”
John 14:2 (ESV)
HEAVEN IS WHERE GOD LIVES
A dying man asked his Christian doctor to tell him something about the place to which he was going. As the doctor fumbled for a reply, he heard a scratching at the door, and then had his answer. “Do you hear that?” he asked his patient. “It’s my dog. I left him downstairs, but he has come up and hears my voice. He has no idea of what is behind the door, but he knows that I am here.
There are a lot of things we don’t know about what’s behind the door of heaven. But we do know some of the most important things. One of the most important things we know about heaven is that God lives there. Jesus used the image of a mansion where His Father lives to describe heaven.
As a child, do you remember looking forward to going to a certain family members house? Maybe a grandmother who cooked well or an uncle who enjoyed playing catch. Well, when we get to heaven God will be waiting on us. What is it about God’s nature that makes you look forward to seeing Him? Praise Him for those parts of His nature you thought about.
