"Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars" (Proverbs 9:1)




Solomon speaks of what the wisdom of God has to offer, in terms we can all relate to, a home.  Though we may take it for granted and think very little about it, the home is one of the essentials of human life.  It is our place of security, society, and rest and especially love.  A man's home is his castle.  It is where we live.But our earthly homes can only meet a temporary need.  They have to do with this life, and its needs.  The human heart has deeper longings and craves eternity.  Here, our children grow up and move away; the house structures themselves decay and grow old; and so do we.  But the wisdom of God has made provision for a house built for eternity.  The seven pillars hewn out by the wisdom of God speak to us of the perfect eternal support provided by God's salvation.
Jesus promised to prepare this place in John 14:1-2.  "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
Abraham was able to leave his father's house in answer to God's call and live in tents ("tabernacles") in a strange land because he believed God had a greater and eternal dwelling place for him.  "By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God" (Hebrews 11:9-10).
As you enjoy the blessings of home this Christmas season, remember its happiness is a proverb, a faint picture of the lasting joys of God's house awaiting those who become His children by faith in Jesus Christ and His death for us on the cross.  We are also enabled to patiently endure the shortcomings of our earthly homes if we are able to reflect on the privilege of being of the household of God, with a home awaiting us of security, rest, and love that will go on forever.

We now have many churches polishing on the internet. This is long overdue, as the truth is, the internet has come to stay and we have to use it to our advantage. It can help us get many things done, really a good medium for evangelism. Thanks for reminding us of our home in heaven, and how pleasant that will be.

There is no denying it, the world today is not the way it was less than twenty years ago. If in the past many homeowners balked at the thought of installing home security systems installed by privately owned home security companies, today the idea of not installing one in the home can be quite alarming.
