A New Home

You don’t need to be a home owner very long to realize that keeping it looking new requires routine maintenance and repairs. Many are small and as time wears on it requires major repairs. If those repairs are ignored over the years the house will begin to look old and unkept. Soon the wind blows through the closed windows, water seeps in the basement, the foundation blocks show cracks and on goes the malady.

There will be a point when the house is no longer able to be repaired and is torn down. At that point you look for a new house. It can be exciting looking for a new home, new neighbors, yard and neighborhood and stores.

Our bodies require maintenance to remain healthy and well. However, as time moves on, we need more repairs and not always small ones. Then finally the day comes where we must move to a new country and meet those who have moved before us. One of the residences came to speak and said it was an incredible place of deep joy and no worries. Sounds like a great place to retire. I also know there is room for everyone if they choose to go.

Like trading in an old home for a new one it will be incredible to leave this body behind and receive a new one that is perfect and will last for eternity.

Are you making plans and preparations for the move?  It’s never too early to begin.

2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
