Week 17

Heavenly Mansions

"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you,

I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

- John 14:2-3

We all find it very pleasing to live in a beautiful house. In fact, who wouldn’t? To live in a state where we can say “home sweet home” is a dream that anyone will be delighted of. To be able to sit in a sofa all relaxed and have nothing to worry about is really something that can take any stress away. The comfort of a place we can call our won is undeniably worth having. It can eventually make anyone smile to see himself in such a condition. The joy of being under the roof of a fine shelter is definitely a thumbs up. There Is happiness to be just walking to its gate that awaits your arrival. It is a wonder which brings an awe of astonishment to anyone’s eyes.

The Lord has told that it is in his mind to prepare a place for us where we can joyously stay. He said it in his word. It is a clear statement that we can looked upon as time passes by. He said it faithfully as he himself is faithful.

However, in a mind of a simple individual, an inquiry portraits by which presents a matter well sought for. It is by far pleasant to take a clear point upon it. Who are we that the Lord has set it to account that he shall make ready a place where we can stay? Who are we that he points out of a very wonderful task to do for u? In Psalms 8:4-9, the author of the psalmist also has it in want of an answer. He was curious to know what we are in God’s eyes. It came into his mind that he shall look to it as which is the matter of his psalm.

“What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?

You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour.

You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet:

All flocks and herds and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air and the fish of the seas.

O Lord our God, how majestic is your name in all the earth!"

As the psalm tells it, we are a bit lower than the heavenly beings but that doesn’t change God’s love for us that he even made man the ruler over the works of his hands.

More than just simple houses we can see, the Lord regarded mansions upon his words. Bigger and definitely better places where one can stay is stated in the verse. And to think that it is all in the Father’s house is an idea well accounted for. We all have seen mansions in the movies and maybe in real life too. Who wouldn’t want to live in one? They are just nice things to gaze upon. As they have been formed graciously, they become impressive as they draw to completion. They can caught us impressively and simply in a manner worth going at it again.

The Lord wants us to be with him where he currently is. He looks forward to seeing you along. To be one day where he is now must not be out of the positive things that makes Christians greet their days full of life. That is why when that day comes, he wants to see us happily in his presence and we will live full of joy with that by which he sets in preparation for us, those heavenly mansions
