Take Me Home

Words & Music: Dennis Jernigan

Received on November 24, 2010


But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

2 Corinthians 4:7-11 NASB


This world is not my home. It is not my final destination. I am here but for a season – but I am here for a reason. I am here to lay my life down for God’s glory and for the sake of others. Sin and the lies of the enemy see to it that trials and tribulations come our way – daily. I am no different than you. Sometimes the darkness seems to be winning. More and more it seems like the world calls right wrong and wrong right. Personally, my attacks come a great deal of the time from the sharing of my story of redemption. The world tells me I am doing more harm than good by telling people change is possible…and, at times, I fear for my own safety and for the safety of my family…and that gets old. But I expect that from the world. When I am most tempted to give up is when I receive opposition from the body of Christ. Some from the Christian world often ask me things like this: “Are you sure it’s sin?” or make statements like, “You limit the love of God by telling people they are in sin.” My battle often leaves me feeling alone on the battlefield and abandoned by the body of Christ. I know that cannot possibly be true but the enemy does his darndest to get the opposition in my face. This song came as I came through a particularly difficult time of personal bombardment. I hesitate to even share these things with you because some will see this as whining and complaining. That is the furthest thing from the truth. I share because truth – led by honest confession – sets us free. The Holy Spirit has prompted me that there are many others in the body of Christ who feel the same way at times. Reality is this: we are never alone…and God wastes nothing – even pain or suffering or sorrows – if we allow Him to join us through those trials. He will use even our greatest wounds to bring about His glory and our good. There is grace for us to make it through…this world truly is not our home…but Home is already in our hearts to enjoy before we ever cross death’s door. It is in that place of intimacy with Christ in the midst of the journey that we find the comfort, peace, protection, and joy of ‘Home’.
