Full House

John 14:2 There are many rooms in my Father’s house

Each perch at the birdfeeder was full as I glanced out my window this morning. “Full house”, I thought…glad I filled it up!

Some restaurants also experience a full house, especially on week ends. “Sorry,” they will say, “reservations are full.” This can be a discouraging situation, especially if you are planning a celebration. Football stadiums may have a full house for game weekends, though it is referred to as a sell out crowd. Being turned away at the gate can be an disappointing situation.

There is a house which is never full, for there is room for all in this particular one. Jesus said, “There are many rooms in my father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly.” (John 14:2) What a promise! There will always be room for you and me or all of God’s children in His house. No short supply of places to abide, and it is for eternity. That is the good news, and I am thankful for it!
