Friday Thoughts

This past week my wife and I were watching the Academy of Country Music Awards.  Carrie Underwood sang her newest release "Temporary Home".  We should all be reminded that this world is only our temporary home.  God created us, breathed life into us and placed us here with a plan for our lives.  We have the free will to seek His face and obey his will for our lives, or go our own way.  The choice is ours.  For those of us who call the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, this temporary home is only the beginning of the abundant life.  That life begins when we acknowledge our sinful behavior and our need for salvation.  We realize that Jesus Christ is indeed the only Son of the Living God and we ask for forgiveness and invite Christ into our lives and our hearts. For Christ said, "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me."  John 14:6 At that moment we are changed.  Changed into new creatures.
We are all going to spend eternity somewhere.  We will either spend eternity separated from God, without hope, without salvation, and without anything other than eternal torment.  Or, we will spend eternity in the presence of the Living God, singing His praises, rejoicing in His salvation.  We will spend it in a place that He has prepared just for us.  Christ said, "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  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.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also."  John 14:1-3
So, with that said, I give you Carrie Underwood, "Temporary Home."  Enjoy
