John 14:3 And If I Go And Prepare A Place For You, I Will Come Back And Take You To Be With Me That You Also May Be Where I Am.
So many times, in so many ways, we do not want to be where we are when we are in pain. So many times, in so many ways, we read in the Lord's gospel how He is going to take us away from where we are in our pain. He is going to take us to a better place…His place where we will be with Him. All of us know, no matter how much pain we are in, there is a better place than the place we are in at the pain-filled moment. Jesus does not lie. The Lord does not tell half-truths. We will live in His emerald city above our present pain and trials. We do not know all the glory and grandeur He has in store for us. All we can do is imagine and we cannot ever imagine enough. We will not have to try and get to His place on our own for He will come and take us to where He lives. Even now, even in our most painful moments, He is working to prepare the most perfect of perfect places for us. Let us not be left out of His home. Let us accept Christ into our heart and life just as He will accept us into His heart, life, and home in eternal joy, peace, fun, and love.
