One of the great tragedies of 2008 was the unprecedented rise in foreclosures. Every week, news anchors and columnists shared the disheartening statistics. Just imagine how painful it must be to leave a home where you’ve created so many memories. Worse, imagine trying to resume life after foreclosure. How do you survive in an unstable economy if you have poor credit?
Aren’t you glad that JESUS has a home for us that’s immune to foreclosure? That’s the reminder embedded in the verses cited above – we have a heavenly home exempt from foreclosure! There are at least two grounds for celebration in these verses. First, a lot of people can live there, for JESUS said there’s more than enough room in HIS FATHER’S house. Second, the application process is very simple. All we have to do is accept HIM as our SAVIOR – no loan application, safety inspections, closing costs, or homeowners fees required!
The best news is that this is the best home ever built. John beheld it’s beauty and said, “It shone with the glory of God and sparkled like a precious stone-like jasper as clear as crystal” (Revelation 21:11, New Living Translation). Wow, what a home! I look forward to being your neighbor in heaven!
