As Christ-followers we are stuck in the confusing reality of experiencing God’s Kingdom even though it is not fully here. The chorus of House Wren goes like this: I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs, ‘Cause it’s a beautiful day, I’m gonna spread my wings, ‘Cause as far as I know, I am halfway home.
Following Jesus involves knowing our destination. Eternity. With. God. Knowing Him means we are halfway home. Earth is not our home, home is where we are in God’s presence eternally. Read Colossians 3:1-4 (http://bit.ly/2PLRTpS) as a reminder to set your heart on your true home, with Christ.
