Jesus Cares about Our Future Comfort

Jesus Cares about Our Future Comfort

“In my Father’s house are any rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2).

My wife and attended a very impressive open house in our neighborhood. First, it expressed a couple’s deep love and concern for the husband’s aging parents. The couple had hired a professional contractor to transform their sizable basement into an apartment for the parents. Secondly, the remodeled basement epitomized comfort, attractiveness, and convenience. It even included an elevator!
Before Jesus kept His rendezvous with death, He gathered His disciples together to comfort and instruct them. Knowing they would miss His companionship, He told them He would return to Heaven, prepare a place for them, and come back someday to escort them to Heaven.
We may not be able to afford a multi-million-dollar house down here, but our heavenly accommodations will outclass even the most luxurious dwelling down here. After all, Jesus, the Carpenter of Nazareth, is preparing it. Its beauty, comfort, and design will thrill us, and it will be maintenance free forever. It will never need a new roof or a paint job or window replacement or any other upkeep expense. We won’t have to deal with mortgage payments, property taxes, utilities bills, or homeowners insurance. As for an elevator, we won’t need one. If we have to climb stairs, doing so will be a breeze. We will have left every physical distress behind—even those aching knees.

INSIGHT: We do not know when our final moving day will be, but we know it will be to the place Jesus is preparing for us.
