“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.”
28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. 30 I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, 31 but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.
“Come now; let us leave.” (John 14.1-4, 28-31 , NIV)
“Comfort during many seasons of life. The promise that He fulfilled in us. His words, Our comfort.”
When you think about the troubles of this world, how does Jesus’ promise to prepare a place for us in heaven bring you peace?
What reasons do we have to be glad to Jesus returned to the Father before coming to bring us to him?
How does Jesus’ obedience to do what God has commanded him spur you to also do good and obey God?
