Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 232

  1. “Do not let your hearts be troubled” (John 14:1).

There is always much to trouble one’s heart, especially when your Master is about to be put to death before your own eyes. Here, Jesus wants His disciples to know the greater story behind what they are about to see. He is preparing a place for them. By His death and His resurrection, they will find a place in God’s eternal kingdom. Some have the idea that Jesus is promising to build them a place, but the Father’s house already has many rooms, and it’s unlikely that they need repair. Instead, Jesus is letting us see that by His death, He is giving us residence there. One could say that He is preparing us to be welcomed there.
