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.
