John 14:2 (NASB) In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
While talking with a home owner, we went over the plans for his new house again to make sure all the rooms were set and that what he wanted was included. A place to sleep, an office, kitchen, bathrooms etc. This needed to be done before we started to build and his family moved in. Today's verse shares Jesus' words about where we will spend eternity. Without the plans laid out and the drawings set, there was only the dream of the house he wanted. After planning it out and doing the paperwork, his dwelling place could be started. God's House - where those who know His Son will spend eternity - is being prepared for us as we speak. There will be many dwelling places for us, but will we be there? The only thing required is a personal relationship with His Son. Do you know Him? There's no place like Home!
Personal Application: Continue spending time with the Lord daily. Sow righteousness and reap the fruit of God's unfailing love.
Family Devotion: Read this chapter with your family. Ask them if anything spoke to them and discuss. Pray with them.
