“There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.”
This was the ending of the 1939 classic, Wizard of Oz. Isn’t this true? We often have a longing and appreciation for our homes. They are often places of comfort, security, and happiness.
In this Psalm, the people of Israel are celebrating the city of Jerusalem: their home.
Verse 3: O city of God, what glorious things are said of you!
Not only is there a celebration of the city of Jerusalem at that time, but there is a celebration for the future of Jerusalem.
Verse 6: When the Lord registers the nations, he will say, “They have all become citizens of Jerusalem.”
Revelation 21 gives us a picture of this New Jerusalem, where all who are in Christ Jesus from every nation will be citizens of Jerusalem.
- There will be a shout declaring God’s home is among his people.
- There will no tears, no death, no sorrow, & no pain.
- The Lord will make all things new.
We can look forward to our great new home with the Lord where we will say:
Psalm 87:7 …All my springs are in you. (ESV)
And the Lord will say:
Revelation 21:6 …To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. (ESV)
There’s truly no place like home! Take a moment to thank the Lord for giving us eternal life with Him.
