John 14:1-6 (NIV)
Jesus Comforts His Disciples
14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 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? 3 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. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
2. If Jesus went to prepare a place for you and me, will those places all be the same or different? Why do you think so?
Lord, I am troubled by things in this life, my heart is in despair and at times I am afraid of the future. Lord, I thank You for Your promise of peace when I trust that You are the way and the truth and the life that will show me the way through my doubt and despair. How comforting it is that You come back for me and that You have prepared a room for me to live for eternity. You not only loved me enough to forgive my sins but care for me enough to take care of my personal needs both here on earth and in heaven. Amen
