Preparing a Place

It is such a joy when someone saves a place for us. We walk into a crowded room wondering how we’re going to find a seat, and someone across the way waves us over; pointing to a chair they’ve held especially for us. For a moment we feel a sense of relief, a taste of being on the inside.

Now consider Jesus’ words in John 14:2—”I am going . . . to prepare a place for you.”

Jesus

Christ promises that He is saving a place in heaven especially for each of us. When we walk into the crowded excitement of the wedding feast of Jesus Christ with the sound of thousands of conversations, clinking glasses, laughter and music, we will once again feel that excitement of being let into the inner circle.

We’ll be welcomed to the table by our Lord Himself. No one will have to scramble to find another chair, to make room for us at the end of the table, or rustle up a place setting. There will be a seat with our name on it, held open at Jesus’ command for us and no other (From the book The Sacred Romance , 182-183).

That will not be by chance. It will only be for those that have prepared their lives to attend. Put your main hope in that special day to come.

Lord Bless,
