“It’s time to get the children home.“
Two years ago, the Lord impressed this phrase on my heart. Since then, He has confirmed His Word over and over again—through my time in the Word, my quiet time, my prayer time—The hour is coming. It’s getting late. Tell my children to come home.
The words have resonated deeply in my spirit because there’s no denying this world can be dark. In Judges, one of the darkest times in history came because, as the writer said, “Everyone did what was right in their own eyes.” I don’t know a better way to describe our society today, and there’s a lot of fear, anxiety, and pain that comes with that kind of moral and spiritual decline.
But the Father’s house is filled with light and joy.

Then Jesus told them, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his own family.” — Matthew 13:57
These were the words Jesus spoke while in his own hometown. The crowd was amazed by what he had been teaching, but they soon became distracted by his past and the things they knew about him, asking, “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son?”
They missed out on the miracles and presence of Jesus because they couldn’t let go of who they thought He was. They ‘bore witness and marveled’ at the empowering presence of God on Him, but then they reduced him back to the familiar and lost out on the eternal.

Let’s talk about Mary and Martha.
If you are unfamiliar with the story, it’s found in Luke 10:38-42:
38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. 40 But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” 41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

There’s a passage of Scripture in John 20 that always makes me laugh. It’s when Mary goes to tell Simon Peter and John that the stone on the tomb had been removed, and verses 3-4 say, “So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.”
