is heaven a place or a person? I think both: heaven is the place where the Person, Jesus Christ, makes His home – and we are promised both – the place and the Person.
“In My Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:2-3)
we are promised not just eternity, but eternity with Jesus – that is the promise – that is the hope – that is “the certainty of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1) for we, who like Abraham, will believe God and God will credit it to us as righteousness. (Genesis 15:6)
like heaven, home is both a place and a person – how fitting then, that one day heaven will be home for us who believe
sincerely, Grace Day
