1. Some of us grew up believing we’d receive a mansion when we got to heaven, but a more accurate translation of John 14:1-4 lets us know that we’ll receive a room or abode in God’s home. Heaven isn’t some expensive residential neighborhood where we each have individual mansions, but more like a luxurious condo or apartment complex. Throughout Scripture, we see that while God cares about us deeply as individuals, He is about community and wants us to be like that as well. Does the image of your own large single-family home appeal to you more than having a room in God’s home? Why do you think that is?
2. Many faiths believe in some concept of Heaven, and just about every person who has ever lived wants to go. But not everyone who wants to go believes Jesus is who He said He is, which is the Son of God. But Jesus is the treasure we should all be seeking, not just a carefree paradise after we die. He is the way, the truth, and the light, and no one gets to the Father except through Him. How are you pursuing Jesus in this season of your life?
3. As Christians, we are foreigners who are to be in this world but not of this world. We often see people who immigrate to a different country try to bring as much of their homeland as possible to their new location. While we eagerly await the return of our Lord and Savior, what are some things you do daily to take a slice of Heaven everywhere with you as you navigate this world?
