The Christmas song says, “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” Throughout the Bible, “home” is a powerful image of our place encounter with God. More than anything this Christmas, we need more encounter with God. This Advent, we will consider how we might come “home” for Christmas. Welcome home!
Jesus takes the initiative to be at “home” in our lives and makes the first move towards us. God in Christ became a human being and “moved into our neighborhood.”
Jesus makes himself at home in our messy lives. Jesus invited himself to Zacchaeus’ house, a home that was empty and lonely because of Zacchaeus’ vocation and reputation. He still does this kind of stuff.
Am I going to get a mansion when I get to heaven? Is this going to be my heavenly home?
For those of us who feel spiritually homeless, Jesus empathizes. When he was born, there was no place for him.
December 24 (Christmas Eve)
Whether you’ve run away from home or stayed at home and been distant, your heavenly Father invites and welcomes you to come home to his extravagant, reckless love.
For followers of Jesus who live at “home” in Jesus and yet feel homeless in this world, our living hope is in the promise that there is a day coming when God’s home will be among his people forever.
