For many years the students of Parker Hill have taken a week or two each summer to build houses in Alabama, for people who have no home. Habitat for Humanity is the organization that funds these building projects. One requirement they have is that the recipient of the house must also work on it. They take pride in helping to build their new home, but the greatest moment, no doubt, is when someone hands them that key and says, “Welcome home.” That’s what God promises for heaven: we’ll be coming home, and it will be a home in which God Himself dwells with us. Best of all, we didn’t have to lift a finger; Jesus has done it all for us, on the Cross. All we have to do is believe. Soon we will hear, “Welcome home!” Then we will dwell with God forever.
Revelation 21:3 ESV
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
Exodus 15:12-13 ESV
You stretched out your right hand; the earth swallowed them. “You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed; you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.
