A HOME OF LOVE
“In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you.”
John 14:2 KJV
A teenage girl was frightened and in pain and told a counselor that her dad abused her sexually. Her brother also said that their dad had been abusing him sexually for many years. It broke the heart of the counselor but not as much as it broke the heart of our Heavenly Father. He is very protective of us.
No, that young girl and her brother did not live in a home of love, they just lived in a house. If there is not love between the ones who live there, it is not a home, it is just a house. We need to ask ourselves if where we live is a home or just a house. We can fool others but we can’t fool God. He sees everything.
Jesus loves us so much that He has prepared a mansion for us in Heaven where we will live for all eternity if we have invited Jesus into our heart to be our personal Saviour. There will be no cursing, no yelling, no hitting or any other kind of abuse. It is a mansion filled with the love of our precious Saviour.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every person who is living in a house instead of living in a home. I pray that every house will become a home filled with unconditional love for one another. Please comfort and encourage everyone who is being abused and protect them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
