And this week the prompt is: HOME
Home, what can I say about home? As a kid I was raised in a Navy house. I think this really changed my attitude about home. I didn't move as often as some Navy kids, but still to me home is people not a place or a house. Home is being with family.
I will admit that for a while I thought of my grandparent's house as home. A great big Victorian home in Montana. But, that got too big and too hard to maintain. They sold it and moved to the town where my aunt lived. And then for sure, there was no physical place to call home.
Now still, even though it is no longer the Navy moving us around, I haven't lived for more than five years in one place. I am ready to call Cincinnati home. But really, deep down, I know that God has not called us to call earth our home. As Christians, our real home is in heaven. And that is the home I should be longing for. And indeed I do.
But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform these humble bodies of ours 30 into the likeness of his glorious body by means of that power by which he is able to subject all things to himself.
