John 14:1-3

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 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? 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.”

Read all of John 14

 A few more favorite verses of mine.  In these verses Jesus clearly reveals that he understands his disciples and us.  How often don’t we let worry and doubts wash over us?  Jesus says, “Don’t.”  “You believe in God… believe also in me.”  Jesus addresses our weakness with his strength.  He is not only desirous of our rescue and care, but able also, being Almighty God.
In the verses that follow, He reveals his future plans and promises that we will be a part of them.  I’m going away to prepare things for your arrival.  This wouldn’t make any sense, unless I was going to come back and bring you to be with me.
The wonder of God’s grace is before us. 
“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.”
