My Father’s home is designed to accommodate all of you. If there were not room for everyone, I would have told you that. I am going to make arrangements for your arrival. I will be there to greet you personally and welcome you home, where we will be together. (John 14:2-3, Holy Bible, The Voice)
Jesus strengthened His disciples while they accompanied Him during His earthly ministry. Then the time approached that Jesus must prepare them for His departure. He assured them that His absence would be temporary. Jesus promised to create an eternal home where His followers will join Him.
The original English versions say mansions. Other translations say rooms or dwelling place. It isn’t what the location is called that makes it heaven. It’s because we will be with Jesus for eternity.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I’m looking forward to eternity with You. Amen.
