WE ARE HOME WITH JESUS
“That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.”
Hebrews 6:18-20 KJV
Rev. E. Adams wrote a beautiful hymn “Let Go the Anchor”. “Rocks and storms I’ll fear no more, When on that eternal shore; Drop the anchor! Furl the sail! I am safe within the veil!” One joyous day, we will be home with Jesus and there will be no more battles to fight. We will have peace and joy forever!
There are some days that are more challenging than other days, days that make us want to go to bed and stay there but we need to stay on the battlefront for Jesus. Just knowing that one glorious day we will see Jesus face to face and be with Him for all eternity should fill our heart with joy and happiness.
I believe when Jesus was here on earth on the mission His Father had sent Him on that there were days when He missed His Father and was very tired. Jesus also wanted to go to bed and stay there. However, Jesus loves His Father and He loves you and me so much that He endured the ridicule and abuse.
Have you allowed it to go from head knowledge to heart knowledge that one day we will be with Jesus for all eternity? There will be no more storms of life. Our enemy, satan, will be unable to attack us ever again. Best of all, we will see Jesus. O how I long for the day when I will see Jesus face to face.
