The last chapter of the Old Testament story shows us God bringing his people out of exile, just as he promised. But while the people lived in their historic land again, their hearts were still elsewhere. The Old Testament ends with the people needing their hearts to come home, and in Jesus we find the one who can bring all of us all the way back home to God.

Application Questions

If "home is where the heart is," where does your heart look for home here on the earth? Think about your relationships, vocations, and activities. Which of those "homes" are an extension of the home you have in God? Which of them are an attempt to seek a home apart from God?

Are there areas of your life that you are neglecting or fighting against because your heart is looking for home somewhere else? How would you treat those areas of life if you knew you had a permanent home in God that could never be taken away?

Brainstorm together with your Community Group: what are some practical ways we can abide in Christ? Share the ways you still "live in your old home" with your emotions, reactions, and more. How can we help each other move in to our new home in Jesus?
