    Its a sad verse even the animals have homes but I hve no home, no territory to call my own, no place of shelter. These are fundamental needs of all living creatures but you must let go of them to follow my life- style.
  • Steve H Miller for verse 58
    Read John 3:verse 3 to 12
  • Matekai patrick for verse 58
    I am leaving in a single room with my wife and our two sons,as much as the room is very small to fit our family,Luke 9:58 is one of the verses in the Bible that give me courage on how my Lord left his glory in heaven and came on earth to be homeless that i may have a home to belong(Heaven)and a room to stay,yet he had no were to lay his head. Dear friend, have you yet come to Jesus for Salvation? For he said except a man be born again,he can not see the kingdom of heaven(John 3:3).You must be born again.
