Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 233

  1. “In my Father’s house are many rooms” (John 14:2).

There’s room for you where I am going. That’s the message of these words in the literary context. Jesus has told His disciples that He is leaving them and they can’t follow yet, but in Father’s house, there’s room for them. His promise of eternity surely provides sufficient proof that the disciples were already members of His eternal kingdom. All that remained for them was the act of Jesus to open that door. So they shouldn’t lose heart, even when the evident situation looks bleak. Neither should we.
