The Homeless

"We are homeless until Christ is at home in our hearts"

I have seen them curled up on park benches in Chicago. I;ve observed them asleep in doorways within the shadow of the White House. They slump against the walls of a New York subway. they huddle in the alleys of Los Angeles. They are the homeless, restless, furtive, often sick.

To me, homelessness illustrates the human condition without God. The Bible says, "All we like sheep gave gone astray" (Isaiah 53:6).

To deny God, as so many people do today, is to be homeless in a world He designed for His own glory.
To abandon His moral law is to drift aimlessly.
To deny Him is to make life meaningless.
To refuse His love is to sink into the coldness of despair.

The answer to the human dilemma is to believe in Jesus Christ.
The early church leader Augustine (354-430) said, "Thou hast made us for Thyself, and the heart of man is restless untill it finds its rest in Thee."

To trust in Christ is to come into the warm and loving family of God.
To hope in Him is to look forward to a heavenly home that will last forever (John 14:1-3).
To receive Him is to become part of His wolrd of truth, morality and peace.

Are you feeling homeless? Come home to God. (Dave Egner)
