The hope of peace and rest in heaven can sometimes be the only thing that gets people through difficult circumstances. The disciples must have felt that same longing as they dealt with a range of emotions in the hours leading up to Christ’s death. In this message from John 14, Alistair Begg encourages us to consider Christ’s words of consolation to His disciples. The assurance of heaven is also for us if we put our trust in Him.
1“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God;1 believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?2 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4And you know the way to where I am going.”3 5Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
