Week 2 – Tuesday
John 14:1-3 NIV “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me; in my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
Here Jesus is comforting those that would be left behind on earth (his disciples, etc.) when He went back to Heaven after completing the task He had come to earth to accomplish. Here He is encouraging them (and US!) that He is preparing an eternal home for us. He, right now, is with the Father, our Father. We have a future! Our future is all planned out and we can TRUST! We must CHOOSE to put our trust in God, in His Son Jesus, the physical representation of our Father, that He is up in Heaven holding us in the palm of His hand and He has a perfect plan for our lives both temporal and eternal. Do you believe Heaven is for real? Are you confident this is the place you will go and reside for eternity? If not, talk to God, your loving Father about this. Ask Him to reveal His truth to you about eternity.
We invite you to share your insights and thoughts by leaving a comment below or by replying to another comment.
If you would like, you can unpack the verse S.O.A.P style:
S = Scripture; what is it that I’m reflecting upon.
O = Observation; what does this mean to me, what do I notice? What got my attention? Can I rephrase this in my own words?
A = Application; how can I apply this into my life? What action can I take as a result of what I just learned
P = Prayer; based on what I’ve learned and my application/action, pray – talk to God about your insight, ask for help, offer thanksgiving.
