When Will You Come Home?

Summary

Our destiny is heaven. The glorious and everlasting presence of God is our home where we actually belong. However, we need to make the decision to return home.

The Bible tells us in Rev 21:27 that nothing impure will ever enter into heaven. Sin separates us from the Holy God. However, the blood of Jesus Christ forgives and reconciles us back to God. The good news is that we do not have to perform anything but REPENT of sin.

We must repent of our sin because sin leads to misery and destruction. Sin starts with selfishness, and then it leads us to spiritual abasement—the absence of the blessing of God.

In the story told in Luke 15:11-24, the rebellious son decides to return to his father. However, the most remarkable turn in the story is the character of the father. When the son is returning home, he finds his father waiting for him. Jesus presents the God, the creator of Heaven and earth as a loving Father who is waiting with an open arm, longing to receive the sinner into his arms.

We read in Luke 15:20, that while the son was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. We have a God who loves us in this manner. Would you consider to return to Him?

Are we living in sin? Please stop living in sin. Know that you have a father who is looking for you and waiting for you. Sin is a deception. It has its own tragic consequences, but the repentance leads to recovery and freedom. We read in Acts 3:19-20, Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you-- even Jesus. Why waste our time and why delay the decision for Christ? Now is the time. Turn to Jesus Now. Salvation is a gift from God for you. Admit that you are a sinner and turn to Jesus in repentance. Believe that Jesus Christ has died for you. Consider him as your Lord and Master and you will have freshness from the Lord.
