IMAGINE A BIG HOME

Our Devotion for Thursday, March 30, 2023, is taken from: Amazing Grace Devotions for Lent by Michael Hoy.

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them.

Revelation 21:3 NRSV
 

IMAGINE A BIG HOME



We have oppressed people by keeping them in their place we have even slaughtered fellow human beings in violence and war. But this is no more the case in the home of God. Jesus himself lived God’s vision for his people – embracing, welcoming, befriending all as one, dwelling with those who had no place and rejecting any calls for violence with the resolve to die an innocent death for the sake of a people desperate for redemption.

 

Friends,

God has called us to be blessing to those around us, to assist without hope of reward or reciprocation, and to offer compassion without need of accolades. The reading from Revelation reminds us that God has a space for each of us. Christ calls us to serve others and not be served, so that the light of Christ might brighten the darkness all around us.
