December 9, 2018 The Way Back Home

Will you be “home for the holidays” this year, believing that “there’s no place like home”? Then you understand the natural yearning for a place of rest, a place to belong, a place where the depths of love and fellowship are unmatched – a home.

In this Sunday’s scripture from the Gospel of John, Jesus comforts his disciples as he prepares for his death and resurrection. He assures them that he will not abandon them, that he is going to prepare a place for them – an eternal home.

“But Lord,” Thomas asks, “how will we know the way to this home?” Jesus declares “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Have you accepted this unmerited gift of a way home to God? No other gift will ever be as valuable as the gift of salvation through Jesus. Why not pray to your Heavenly Father right now, a prayer of faith declaring that Jesus alone is your way, your truth, and your life?

Peace in Christ, Pastor Bob
