Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 13 (day one)
I went to visit my father last week. 94 years old. It was good to be back in Amarillo. As long as I live, that city will feel like home.
In Christ I have learned to anticipate a new home that will be mine someday. “In my Father’s house are many dwelling places. . .I go to prepare a place for you.”–John 14:2-3
What will Heaven be like? In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul identifies three things in our present experience that will abide (remain) into the new world.
FAITH will continue. In a new shape. Trust that began in time will deepen into dependence and unbreakable loyalty. HOPE that I previously held will expand to embrace unimaginable adventures in an eternally expanding story. And the greatest? The LOVE that I knew only in part (through a glass darkly)will be experienced fully in that coming day. I will see Him!
And I will know that I am home.
