“Longing for my heavenly home” 2 Corinthians 5: 1-10

The more I grow in Christ Jesus, the more I long for the day of the Lord Jesus’ return.  I am so thankful to have a relationship with the Trinity of God.  Though I don’t understand how the Trinity works because God has given me limited knowledge, I do know that it is true and believe this with all my heart, soul, and mind.  I am happy to be here each day with my family and to watch my children grow, but I desire so much in my heart to be in my heavenly home.  I do have God, but my longing is for when this wicked world will disappear and to live with my God and see Jesus face to face worshiping the perfect Lamb of God that was slain for my sin.  My sin put him on the cross but He was a willing sacrifice.  God the Father has so much love for us that He gave us His Son as an atonement so we can be reconciled back to Him.  I am so excited to see my God and bow before Him in awe with praises never-ending; praising Jesus for His perfect love for us.  I am waiting with increasing excitement as each day passes.  I pray for my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus also that they, too will grow increasingly joyful to meet Jesus in the air.  I don’t know if I will be one of the dead to rise first to meet my Lord in the air or the second, but however it is, I am so excited!

2 Corinthians 5: 1-10  Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.  Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked.  For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed, but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.  Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.  Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are away from home in the body we are away from the Lord.  We live by faith, not by sight.  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
