“This is what he promised us – eternal life” (1 John 2:25).
What a wonderful promise the Lord Jesus has given to us. He says to us, “I go to prepare a place for you. I will come back and take you to be with me so that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:2-3).
When our heads go down, we need to hear these words of Jesus. When “our hearts are troubled”, Jesus’ words will speak to us with power and love. They will give us hope. They will strengthen our faith – “You believe in God; believe also in me” (John 14:1). They will keep us walking with Jesus, who is “the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6). They will reveal to us the love of our heavenly Father (John 14:9). They will bring to us the “peace” of Christ (John 14:27).
