Jesus took all the evil of this world on Himself so that we could have all the good of Heaven today. For those that have Jesus, it’s always good news… even when you don’t realize it!
Home Sweet Home is right here inside of us. Nothing to wait for. Nothing to long for. And not just a foretaste or a sample — it’s all here within us.
What we believe affects our emotions. If we believe that our home is far off from us, as if it’s something we will attain years from now, it gives us a sort of bittersweet ache, and a longing in our hearts for something better. That is the last thing that a born-again believer, carrying Heaven inside of them, should feel.
The Spirit of God is all the good things of Heaven, coming down low, and residing inside of us. God refers to what’s inside of us as “Heaven.” Pay close attention to this verse:
All our lives, we are told in the church that we are strangers to this earth. We don’t belong here. We walk as pilgrims in this world. And one day we will be home. But that last part is unfortunately incorrect.
