Genesis 50:25 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.
God had only sent Joseph and the nation of Israel to Egypt for a time. He was strengthening and growing them. He had promised Abraham certain land. We call that land the promised land!
As Joseph dies he reminds his brothers and the family of God’s promise. The land of Egypt had become home. They were comfortable there but they must never forget that God had greater plans for them.
We live in this world. It is comfortable. It is so easy to think of this world as our home. we tend to forget that we have a promised, eternal, home. We live as if this was all there is to life.
We need to remember and remind others that He is coming again. We are going home to the place we belong. Our home is far better than anything we can enjoy here!
