I am going there to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:1-3

After serving as a missionary for forty years in Africa, Henry C. Morrison became sick and had to return to America. As the great ocean liner docked in New York Harbor there was a great crowd gathered to welcome home another passenger on that boat. Morrison watched as President Teddy Roosevelt received a grand “welcome home” party after his African safari.

Resentment seized Henry Morrsion, and he turned to God in anger, “I have come back home after all this time and service to the church and there is no one, not even one person here to welcome me home.”

Then a still small voice came to Morrison and said, “You’re not home yet.”

Perhaps it’s time to get our minds off this world and on to the things of heaven.  We need to begin to think and act like citizens of that land.  We need to be ready to go home. It is my prayer that as we consider heaven and the joy of meeting Jesus face to face, our hearts will begin to long for home.
