A famous celebrity is listing his house in the exclusive neighborhood of the Hamptons on Long Island, New York. The radio announcer stated that the price had been reduced by $14 million dollars. That was not a good sign! The asking price was now $48 million, such a steal! The house even had a name attached to it. Without missing a beat, the announcer declared, “If you are living in a house a with a name, you can bet that it is extremely costly!”
We all know of famous houses, popularly known by their name. There is the Heart Castle, Falling Waters, Monticello, even the White House. Attaching a proper name to a house seems to elevate the importance and value to everyone else. Sometimes we see lesser houses attempt to cloak their presentation with a similar grandeur. Casa del Franco, The Persian Palace, are just a few of the monikers that have been applied by proud owners, yet somehow the house does not live up to its lofty expectations.
In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
John 14:2 (ESV)
There are many famous houses with names, some well known, others only known to their owners. There is a house that God has prepared for all who have confessed and repented of their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. God’s house is in Heaven and nothing will ever equal or surpass our most extraordinary expectations. It is much more than a structure, it is our eternal home. Someday, I and all believers in Jesus Christ, will be welcomed into God’s house, prepared by our Lord and Savior because of His death and resurrection.
It is a house that does not need a name…it is God’s Home.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
