“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.” John 14:1
Jesus is preparing his disciples for his departure; he’s telling them just because he’s not living here on Earth anymore he’s alive in Heaven waiting for them.
This is great comfort, not only knowing that Jesus is alive and waiting for us but also Jesus reveals a little about Heaven and what we can expect on our journey there.
My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2
Jesus is telling us Heaven has plenty of room for us; you won’t be turned away by lack of vacancy. Jesus promised to his followers he is going to prepare a place for you, question is are you one of his followers?
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3
Not only has Jesus giving us eternal life, promised to prepare a place for us in Heaven, but also he promises to come get you on that day to your Heavenly destination.
God has promised to never leave us or forsake us and he is holding on to that promise. When you leave this Earth , Jesus is coming for you, just as he promised.
“You know the way to the place where I am going. Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way? Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:4-6
Do you know the way to Heaven? If your not sure don’t feel bad because Jesus disciples were not sure. But Jesus clarifies it that he is the only way to Heaven. We are not worthy to stand before God without being washed in the blood of Jesus.
If you lost a loved one or are worried about the future, take comfort in the words of Jesus. He has laid down his life for you and he has prepared a place for you, trust in Jesus and don’t let your heart be troubled anymore Amen
