August 28, 2016 - This World Is Not My Home - II Corinthians 5:1-10

posted Aug 29, 2016, 5:32 AM by Grant Garber
Main Thought
Deep in the human heart there is a homing instinct, which we often ignore and might even deny, but if we turned our attention to it we might realize that heaven is our real home.
  1. There is something in us which earth can never satisfy.
    • Money
    • Position
    • Fame
    • Pleasure
    • Physical Health & Fitness
  2. There is a nostalgia (homesickness) in us for heaven.
Nostalgia = “nostos” = “return home”
“algos” = “pain”
    • God has put in the heart of every one of us a longing for Himself.
    • Here on earth we visit; there in heaven we belong. We will work with enthusiasm and skill and thoroughness in all that concerns the work of God’s will on this earth, and our work will stand out because, by faith, we have the perfect always in view.

Pastor Jim Spon | II Corinthians 5:1-10
