Save Me a Place!

Stadium SeatsHave you ever planned to be somewhere (maybe a baseball game or school play) but knew you couldn’t be there on time?  Perhaps you called and told the rest of your family to go on without you; you would meet them there later.  Before you hung up the phone you reminded them, “Save me a place!”

Shortly prior to his death and later ascension to heaven, Jesus told his disciples, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 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.” John 14:1-3 (King James Version)

Jesus has ascended to heaven and is now sitting at the right hand of God (Acts 1:9-11; Mark 16:19).  Although Jesus has “gone on without us,” those who are Christians hope to be with him there later.  It’s comforting to know that he is “saving a place for us.”

Today, I can look forward to the place Jesus has prepared for me!
