Jesus started life on earth being homeless, born in a manger in a small town while Joseph and Mary were travelling. Then when he began his ministry, he again became homeless. And yet despite his homeless state, Jesus spoke often about home and that, in Him, we could find a place of unconditional love and acceptance. Jesus created this sense of home for the disciples and others that followed him – a place of security and belonging. This is what he wanted his church to be like, to have this feeling of home. He wanted his church to be family, to be unified as one, to be a home for the homeless as we wait for his return to take us to our eternal home.
