“LET NOT YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED” (John 14:1)
????Acts 13:26-33; Ps 2:6-7, 8-9, 10-12a (R.v.7bc); John 14:1-6
In two days to come, precisely on Sunday, we shall have the privilege of hearing Jesus say that to us once more. He goes on to reassure us that once we place ourselves in him, we can be rest assured that all would be fine again. He tells us, “Let your hearts not be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me” (John 14:1).
Indeed, St. Paul tells us in 2 Cor 5:17 that, “anyone who is in Christ is a new creature. For him, old things have passed away.” The old things that have passed away include all that hunt and torment us in life. All those things would be in the past once we have Jesus as our foundation.
As he was gradually coming to the end of his earthly ministry, he knew that his disciples would be worried over the thought of being without him. So he tried to reassure them that he is the source of everything, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6).
If we must get to that home of rest and peace, which is in heaven, we necessarily need to follow him. Are you ready to follow him?
Not even the Jewish opposition could stop him from fulfilling his mission of salvation. Nothing shall stop him from leading you to greener pastures. Amen.
May Jesus the Way assist you with the grace to know the right way to follow him so as to reach eternal life we all yearn for. Amen.
Have a beautiful day with Jesus our Leader. Peace be with you.
