Vitamins for Spiritual Health (6)

‘…Are you in health, my brother?’ 2 Samuel 20:9 NKJV

Never forget, you’re not home yet. The story’s told of an old steamship that pulled into Southampton harbour and the passengers got off. Helium-filled balloons rose into the air and the crowd went wild as a young Hollywood starlet walked down the gangplank to be greeted by her family and friends. The last person off the ship was an elderly man who had spent more than fifty years of his life as a missionary in India. All his earthly possessions were in a tattered suitcase he carried by his side. After getting to his room in a cheap boarding house, he knelt by his bed and prayed: ‘Lord, I’ve served You all my life. I’ve sacrificed everything to tell others the good news of the Gospel and brought many to You. Yet there was no one to celebrate my arrival or welcome me home.’ As he knelt there the voice of God spoke to him softly and said, ‘Son, you’re not home yet!’ And redeemed child of God, neither are you! If God has blessed you with a nice house, thank Him and enjoy it. But don’t get too settled. At best, it’s only temporary accommodation. Paul thought often of Heaven: ‘For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.’ (Philippians 1:23-24 NKJV) God has something ‘far better’ in mind for you. A great preacher once said: ‘It is our main business in this world to secure an interest in the next.’
