This World is not My Home

Aren’t you glad “This World is Not My Home?” Pain, sorrow, disappointments, depression–floods, fires, storms, earthquakes–the list goes on and on. Of course we have our “good days,” but sooner or later if you haven’t already experienced one of these, you will. We are never promised a “bed of roses” in this life, but we are promised so much more in the life to come. We need to remember that the things in our life are temporal:
“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” II Cor. 4:16-18
Do you also remember the song, “Mansion Over the Hilltop?” The words of the chorus are:
I’ve got a mansion just over the hilltop
In that bright land where we’ll never grow old;
And some day yonder, we will never more wander
But walk the streets that are purest gold.

Heaven–what a home that will be? Are you going there?
