Not As The World Gives....

Several years ago, I watched a documentary on TV about the lady who was heir to the Winchester (gun manufacturer) fortune. She was obsessed with the number of people who had been killed with the guns her family had made. She decided that she would provide a resting place for the wandering souls of those deceased, so she continued to build room after room on to her mansion to accommodate the souls until she had a total of 161 rooms when she died. She was trying to provide peace that the world gives. But Jesus had a different idea.

Jesus didn't have to worry about the condition of men's souls since He created them. He knew their condition while He walked the earth, just as He continues to know them today. He provide a real place of eternal rest. He said, "Peace I give you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid." (John 14:27).

Where Mrs. Winchester could only provide something from her imagination for the eternal rest of souls, Jesus provides a true place of rest. I place called heaven! He said, "In my Father's house, there are many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?" (John 14:2).

Don't worry about the future; trust in Christ! He will take you to His home, where you belong!
