Earth is My Heavenly Home

The Prophets point us to the expectation of eternally dwelling with God on a new Earth.

St. Francis of Assisi had a love relationship with the creation and all the creatures in it. That love flowed from a theology which understood that the Earth was God’s initial home, and that ultimately, the earth will be the eternal dwelling place of God again. This theology assigns a profounder meaning to the oft quoted passage: (John 3:16) “God so loved the world that He sent His only Begotten Son…”

The earth, indeed the entire cosmos and all that live therein, is not mere rental property; for temporary use, and then return. But God’s claim on the earth and creation is eternal. We can look forward with great anticipation not only to the redemption of our bodies, but also the redemption of the earth that gives us life.
