I wish someone could tell me what it is about home. I mean really. The other day I was gone all day doing important ministry tasks. When I got home the first thing I did was eat. The second thing I did was sit down in my chair and put my feet up. I thought to myself, “Home”.
According to Dr. Adrian Rogers there are three homes that a person should be concerned with. Let’s take a look at them.
I. A Family Home – Genesis 2:23-24, “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
How is your family? You say it is fine; but, what would God say about your family. We need fathers who will lead their homes as a servant leader and not a tyrant. We need mothers who will be submissive to God and their husbands. I know this is a word that is unpopular; but, it is the truth. We need children that are trained in the ways of our Holy God to love Him.
II. A Church Home – Hebrews 10:24-25, “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
The Church is our support group so to speak. It is a hospital for the spiritually wounded. It is a birthing center for new Christians. It is a spiritual buffet for those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.
III. A Heavenly Home – John 14:2-3, “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.”
There is only one way to be heir to a Heavenly home. You and I must know Jesus Christ as our Saviour. We must realize that we have sinned against God and we must confess our sin to Him calling upon Him in prayer. If we are sorry for our sin and not just sorry we got caught we can be saved. We just turn from our sin to trust Jesus Christ as our Saviour. The Bible tells us in Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” It is simple; but, you must do it for yourself.
So, how are you doing?
