Devotional: Home is a Journey
Jesus made a journey to earth so that we could make a journey to Him. Following God on a journey is a pattern we see all throughout the Bible. In Genesis 12, God told Abraham to leave his country and to follow Him. In Psalm 114, it details the people of Israel leaving Egypt to follow Moses as He followed God. Jesus told His disciples, ‘Come, follow me.” As Christians, we are merely passing through this earth, it is not our home. Instead, our true home, our true place of attachment, comfort, and security, is found in the journey of following Jesus.
