Stephen Spielberg, the acclaimed film producer, said in a television interview years ago that nearly all of his films deal with the underlying theme of homesickness because people are disconnected and pining for a place where they will feel safe and loved - like the extra-terrestrial in the film ET, we too long to go home. The Gospel of Luke concludes with the ascension of Jesus - but where does He go? In John 14, Jesus told His followers that He would go and prepare a place for them and come back to bring them to be with Him. The Bible talks about this home - in this place God “will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain” (Revelation 21:4). We access this beautiful promise through faith in Jesus! He invites you and me into relationship with Him - where we can be fully known and fully loved. And when you get homesick, you can be reminded that Jesus can walk with you all the way... home.
