Homeward Bound

Homeward bound. It gives me hope to know it’s true. And the longer I live, and the more I experience . . . the more I long for the home I have not yet seen. Lord knows I have made my share of blunders, and I sincerely wish there were no more I would make; and I have both given and received my share of the heartbreaks and pains that human kind deals out to one another; All the good any one of us could ever do will never pay for the injustices we have all caused each other.
Love is the supreme ethic because love is the essence and character of who God is. And it is the love of God that swallows up injustice by fulfilling that justice in His Son. It is in His Son that God can be just AND justifier, because the justice our wrongs demand has been poured out on Christ.
I said I am homeward bound, and I know it is true . . . because the Son of God willingly accepted the sentence that was justly mine. I am justified because justice was fulfilled, and God’s love for me has forgiven me and wiped my soul clean forever . . just as if I’d never sinned at all. And I KNOW, that because of what He has done, I have a perfect home to which I have never been before, but I am going. And it is calling to me stronger and stronger every day.
No sad goodbyes, no sickness no pain, no hatred no strife, no heartbreak no injustice . . . no sin. And forever I will be with the One Who died for me.
He loves you . . . I wish you would trust Him too.
