We’re All Just Walking Each Other Home

Home. The meaning of that word is different for everyone.

For some, home is a place where we feel the safest. Our little sanctuary in a world filled with uncertainty. To others, home is the place where we grew up. A place that no longer exists except in our hearts and in our memories.

But for Christians, home has an entirely different meaning. We are strangers here on planet earth and we struggle to fit in.  

In the old hymn, This World is Not My Home, the first verse says, This world is not my home, I’m just a passing through

My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue;

The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door,

And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.

This world isn’t our home. Our true home that we long for is in Heaven.

Philippians 3:20-21 says, But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.     

As we walk each other through days that are becoming increasingly darker, we know one day we will be at home in Heaven with our father and those who have gone on before us.

What a homecoming our first day in Heaven will be.

Until then, Jesus called us to be His light to a world caught up in sin’s darkness. For it is His desire that none should perish but all to come to repentance.  

So, let’s keep working on reaching those who are lost. and rest in the Bible’s promises that one day God will wipe away every tear that we cry.

Revelation 21:4 says, And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

 All the best…

  1. I love this. When I worked, I enjoyed my job but I looked forward to being home. This life is my “job” from the Lord, and when my “shift” here is over, I’m going to get to go home.
