Our True Home



Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;

and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.

 

Isaiah 65:17


The Bible does not answer all our questions about Heaven, and life after death—and the reason is that our minds are limited and heaven is far too glorious for us to understand. Some day, all of our questions will be answered—but not yet. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “Now I know in part; then I shall know fully” (1 Corinthians 13:12).


However, there are four things we do know from the Bible about Heaven.


First: Heaven is Home. The Bible takes the word “home” with all of its tender associations and with all of its sacred memories and tells us that Heaven is home.


Second: Heaven is a Home Which is Permanent. We have the promise of a home where Christ’s followers will remain forever.


Third: Heaven is a Beautiful Home. The Bible teaches that Heaven is a home which is beautiful beyond every imagination. Heaven could not help but be so, because God is a God of beauty.


Fourth: Heaven is a Happy Home. The Bible teaches that Heaven will be a home which is happy, because there will be nothing to make it sad. In Heaven loved ones, families and friends will be reunited. God’s house will be a happy home because Christ will be there. He will be the centre of Heaven. To Him all hearts will turn, and upon Him all eyes will rest.


What a wonderful home awaits all believers!
