"At Home or Away"

“At Home or Away”

Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the Judgement Seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:6-10

There is an act of TRANSFORMATION that EVERY BORN-AGAIN person goes through, from the time they TRULY GIVE their HEART and LIFE to God, for the SALVATION of their soul. And when this takes place, we are fashioned for GOD’S PURPOSE. We instantly receive an ETERNAL HOME with our Lord.

And with CONFIDENCE we KNOW that as long as we are in this body, we are AWAY from the Lord, and we are separated from the FULLNESS of God’s presence. However, we LIVE by FAITH and NOT by SIGHT. Even though we have contact with God through PRAYER, the PRESENCE of His HOLY SPIRIT, which INDWELLS the TRUE BELIEVER, and His Word, we experience HEAVENLY HOMESICKNESS. We long to be at HOME with the LORD!!

The Apostle Paul, says it just like it is; “We are CONFIDENT and would prefer to be AWAY from the body and at HOME with the LORD.” We know that HEAVEN is SO MUCH BETTER than earth, and we can CONFIDENTLY, say we PREFER HEAVEN. So while we wait for our departure, we SHOULD make it our GOAL to PLEASE HIM, whether we are in the body or away from it, we SHOULD AIM to be WELL PLEASING TO HIM.

The Judgment Seat of Christ, is the MOTIVATION for our DEEPEST DESIRE to be PLEASING to God. It is the place where ALL our works will be JUDGED, and where we will receive our REWARDS for the things we have done in the body, whether GOOD or BAD. This does NOT refer to SIN, because ALL our SINS are FORGIVEN and COVERED by the BLOOD of CHRIST. It refers to those things that are WHOLESOME, PURE, and done in LOVE or if they are USELESS and done with an UNCOMPASSIONATE HEART, and whether they are carried out with the desire to GLORIFY GOD. Where are you MOST at HOME, in the presence of SIN or in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you do not possess the ETERNAL HOME in HEAVEN. But you are destined for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY OF ESCAPE. In order for you to be able to look forward to an ETERNAL HOME in HEAVEN, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and look FORWARD to an ETERNAL HOME in HEAVEN with ALL its BLESSINGS. So do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
