DAILY READINGS: Exodus 16:1-36; Psalm 52:1-54:7; Acts 9:1-31

In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? John 14:2 

Driving through a town in Pennsylvania, I caught sight of a sign outside a building which said “Christ’s Home.” It was a funeral home and I wondered how many people had found themselves, on their decease, being in that particular home, but not actually arriving in Christ’s eternal home (the Father’s house). To enjoy the comforts and companionship of the Father’s house requires being born into the family of God by accepting Christ by faith. Only then can a place be prepared. —Brian Powlesland

There is a home, a glorious home, a heavenly mansion fair;
And those we loved so fondly here, will bid us welcome there.
