Archive: Sheep Looking Toward Home - Observer Message - August 2011

We have spent the first half of the summer weekends finishing our look at Psalm 23. What a blessing we have - to be a member of Jesus' flock, to have the promise that, as David says, "I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Welcome home! We welcome home soldiers from the war in Afghanistan. We welcome home kids from a long day of learning at school. We welcome home a spouse from a hard day or night at work. When God welcomes us home in heaven, it will be even more special. He will welcome us home to our eternal, everlasting, never-ending home in heaven. That will be a special day for each of us indeed! To be forever with the Lord - it will be great!!!
