Last night, I spent a couple of hours working on our son’s nursery. Afterwards, as I drove to the house where Steph and I are house sitting, I envisioned what the end product will be like, and I thought of the day when we’ll bring him home and enter the nursery and I’ll say, “Welcome home, buddy. This is your room. I hope you like it.”
I’m really looking forward to that day.
I quickly thought about some of Jesus’ last words, “I go to prepare a place for you.”
It really struck me because when I think of heaven, I think of being with Jesus.
That is heaven… just being in God’s presence.
I know heaven has more to it that we can find in the scriptures, but it’s all kind of icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned.
But the more I thought about it, the more I was really blown away:
Those Extreme Home Makeover guys can put together a pretty sweet house in about a week.
God created the whole known world in less than a week.
…and He’s been building something for 2,000 years.
And if the way I feel about greeting my son is any indication, He’s looking forward to us coming up to join Him!
If that doesn’t get you excited, then you’re probably a Tar Heel fan or something…
