The Rose Bowl!
After 55 years, I finally attended a football game at the Rose Bowl! To make this an even more special event, I sat in the VIP section. My cousin is married to the athletic director for a major university and they were the visiting team. He kindly offered my family four tickets to join him, my cousin, and about 20 other VIPs. What a thrill it was to ascend the elevators and be ushered to these special rooms. The suites were air conditioned with trays overflowing with food and drinks! A large television screen simultaneously broadcast the game and there were luxurious leather chairs and sofas to lounge. The room opened to outdoor shaded seating, where we could experience the full excitement of the crowd and game. From our vantage point, I could see the other VIP suites, all with similar amenities. This was very cool!
In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
John 14:2 (ESV)
As special a day that this was, it does not even begin to approach the glory and splendor of the day when Jesus Christ brings me to my eternal home in Heaven. His promise to me and all believers is that He has prepared a room for us. Air conditioning, gourmet food, an exuberant crowd...the Rose Bowl has nothing to compare to God’s Home!
Would you like to be there? The entry qualifications are also through a family member, but not a cousin. If you confess and repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, He will send His Holy Spirit to indwell within you. At that moment, you will become a child of God. You will have the privilege to address God as your Father in Heaven. Jesus, Himself, will usher you to your eternal and glorified room in Heaven.
The Rose Bowl was amazing but I can’t wait to live in God’s home!
All praise be to the living God!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
