Grace That Carries Us Home
Because of the blood of the lamb, the children of Israel passed from death to life, darkness to light. Because of the blood of the Lamb, believers today are also delivered from death to life.
Judgment may be all around you, but the moment you experience salvation through the Cross, the blood of the Lamb covers your life. You are no longer under judgment. You are under grace because of the work of substitution in Christ Jesus.
Because of the Cross, you no longer belong to Satan’s domain.
There is an old chorus with these words:
This world is not my home; I’m just a-passing through.
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.
The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door,
And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore.
Those words ring more true today than ever! Heaven has chosen you, so you cannot live as though you are still part of the world. As you follow Jesus, you will be surprised by what happens in the spirit. You begin to despise the things of the world and what they represent.
The moment you experience the Savior in your hearth, this world is no longer your home. You have passed from death to life. Your home is now heaven.
And heaven will become sweeter and more inviting the longer you serve the Master.
Jesus is preparing a place for you.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 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 14:1-3
