He’s Building a Place for You


In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:2-3)

The Builder’s Show is in town and people are going to get the newest and most appealing ideas in how to decorate and equip their homes. Each vendor claims to have the product that will make life easy, efficient or enjoyable. Gizmos and gadgets for plumbing, decorating, painting, and lighting—it’s all there. Some of it is pretty amazing, and certainly would add comfort, beauty and intrigue to any home. Unfortunately, each item comes with a pretty hefty price tag!

In spite of all the creativity and uniqueness of the builders show, there is nothing there that can compare to the home our Savior is preparing for those of us who know Him. As I think of Heaven and all God has created for those that love Him, my mind is boggled and I can’t even begin to picture it all. And the most amazing part about it all is that it’s free to you and to me because Jesus already paid the price! His death on the cross was payment in full. No monthly payments, no installment plans, no mortgage. PAID IN FULL! It’s a free gift for anyone who will take it. Have you accepted that gift? If not, God’s offer is still good.

Almighty Creator and Maker of all things, viewing the vast beauty of the earth that You formed and fashioned is breathtaking. I can’t begin to imagine what you have waiting for me in Heaven. Thank You for the hope of a home in Heaven with You.
