Homecoming

Sunday 27th December 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Philippians 3:1-21
Topic:- Homecoming
Text:- Philippians 3
:20

An old Missionary couple had been working in Africa for years and were returning to New York to retire.
They had no pension; their health was broken; they were defeated and discouraged.
They discovered they were booked on the same ship as President Teddy Roosevelt, who was returning from one of his big-game hunting expeditions.
No one paid any attention to them. They watched the fanfare that accompanied the President’s entourage, with passengers trying to catch a glimpse of the great man.
As the ship moved across the ocean, the old Missionary said to his wife, “Something is wrong.
Why should we have given our lives in faithful service for God in Africa all these many years and have no one care a thing about us?
Here this man comes back from a hunting trip and everybody makes much over him, but nobody gives two hoots about us.”
“Dear, you shouldn’t feel that way”, his wife said.
He replied, “I can’t help it; it doesn’t seem right.”
When the Ship docked in New York, a band was waiting to greet the President.
The Mayor and other dignitaries were there. The papers were full of the President’s arrival. No one noticed this Missionary couple.
That night the man’s spirit broke. He said to his wife, “I can’t take this; God is not treating us fairly”.
His wife replied, “Why don’t you go in the bedroom and tell that to the Lord?”
A short time later, he came out from the bedroom, but now his face was completely different.
His wife asked, “Dear, what happened?”
“The Lord settled it with me”, he said.
“I told Him how bitter I was that the President should receive this tremendous homecoming, when no one met us as we returned home.
And when I finished, it seemed as though the Lord put His hand on my shoulder and simply said; “But you’re not home yet.”
“But our citizenship is in heaven.” See Philippians 3:20.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, help me to understand You better henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Lord’s Day!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
