Homesick
“The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help. But the widow who lives for pleasure is dead even while she lives.”
1 Timothy 5:5-6 NIV
“…I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
John 10:10 NIV
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
Matthew 5:3-6 NIV
1) The Fool’s Way
2) The Way of the Disillusioned ‘Sensible Man’
3) The Christian Way
“It would be the best line we could take if man did not live for ever. But supposing infinite happiness really is there, waiting for us?”
C.S. Lewis
“The Christian says, 'Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire: well, there is such a thing as sex. If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud. Probably earthly pleasures were never meant to satisfy it, but only to arouse it, to suggest the real thing. If that is so, I must take care, on the one hand, never to despise, or to be unthankful for, these earthly blessings, and on the other, never to mistake them for the something else of which they are only a kind of copy, or echo, or mirage. I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
“He may therefore be tempted to change his condition by artificial means, rather than by restoring the ruptured harmony between divine will and human will, the harmony that is ultimately the definition of paradise.”
Nahum Sarna
“Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord,
and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in Thee.”
Augustine of Hippo,
Confessions
“Then the LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man has become like one of Us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—‘ therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden….”
Genesis 3:22-23 ESV
“He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden He placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.”
Genesis 3:24 ESV
“…the author shows that humankind’s happiness (

, ‘good’) does not rest in being ‘like god’ so much as being ‘with God,’ that is, enjoying the blessings of God’s presence….”
John Sailhamer
“You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
Psalm 16:11 ESV
“And he shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the front of the mercy seat on the east side, and in front of the mercy seat he shall sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times.”
Levitcus 16:14 ESV
“And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when You come into your kingdom." And He said to him, ‘Truly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise." It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun's light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into your hands I commit My spirit!’ And having said this He breathed His last.”
Luke 23:42-46 ESV
