Not Home Yet

Have you ever wondered why things are not what they should be concerning you? Why your heart has never had a rest? Why you don't seem to have had genuine peace? It is all because that part of God in you, that part of you that really matters, is not yet at home with it maker and owner! The Bible says in Genesis 2:7, "And the Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and he became a living soul". Until that part that make you a living should returns home, you cannot be said to living. In 1 John 5:12, the Bible says "He that hath the Son has life, and he that hath not the Son, hath not life." Who is the Son? He is Jesus Christ, and of himself he says "I am the Way, the Truth, and the life, no man cometh to the Father but by me" (John 14:6). So return today, receive and have the Son, and your life will have a meaning. Maybe you already know or you've heard about the story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32. The young man strayed away from home and wasted his life in wantonness of sin. Coming to his senses, he made up his mind and returned to his father who had daily been anxiously expecting him to come back home. He was received, pardoned, and given a warm reception. You know too tht you have strayed from God and your Father (Isaiah 53:6). He expects you to return today (Psalm 95:68; 2 Corinthians 6:2; Isaiah 55:6-7). All you need to do is acknowledge your sins and repent (Psalm 51:1-3, 10). A great reception is awaiting you today if only you'll come home (Luke 22:7) Perhaps you have already given your life to Jesus but the cares of this world are distracting you. Don't be deceived, press on and be faithful. Let God be your sufficiency! I learnt recently of two men, one a Missionary, the other, the President of a powerful nation. The Missionary was returning to his country after a 40 year work overseas. This coincided with the return of the President from a 40-hour hunting expedition . A crowd came to receive the President while no man came to welcome the Missionary. Highly discouraged and wroth within himself, the Missionary Lamented "God I have been away for 40 years and now I'm back home with no one to receive me while many had come to welcome the President from hunting spree". But God spoke to him, "My son, you're not Home yet". Brothers, press on, you're not home yet. Sisters, don't look back, you are not home yet.
