Today, I want to go in a different direction but I assure you it’s very relevant to this blog. I want to talk about the physical aspect of our Father’s house.
Of course, I’m talking about your body. For you are Father’s house–His dwelling place, His home and temple on this earth (John 14:23; 1 Cor.3:16; 6:19; Heb.3:6). When you first believed, He came to dwell in your house–to find a resting place in you.

One thing funerals do is bring closure. When we see the body in the casket, we know for certain we’re not going to see them again on the street somewhere.
