My soon to be seven year old son Lincoln drew this in my office recently. The five stick figures represent our family, and the two dogs belong to us too. At the bottom is written “This is are home” in first grade penmanship.
I was thrilled that my boy saw our home as a happy place.
When we learn in Ezekiel 48:35 in the revelation about the new Jerusalem that God’s name is Jehovah-Shammah, which means “The Lord is There.”
And from that day the name of the city will be ‘The Lord Is There.’” – Ezekiel 48:35
John also had a vision of the new Jerusalem in Revelation 21.
When we realize that “God is there,” then we can start experiencing God HERE.
Our home is THERE, with “God is there.”
Ezekiel 48 & Revelation 21 is our picture that allows us to say “this is ARE (our) home.”
