Day 27 – Preparing a Place for You
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. In My Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we don’t know where You are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:1-6).
In life, it is very difficult to stay on the right path and to know who you can trust. How remarkable it is to discover in Jesus the absolute truth. May we ever be grateful that God has made His person and His way known to us through the life of His Son.
- Have you ever met anyone who knows the way, the truth, and the life?
- Why should you trust Jesus to be the answer to these questions?
- How does a person find Father God?
1 CHRONICLES 17:11-14
When your days are over and you go to be with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, one of your own sons, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for Me, and I will establish his throne forever. I will be his Father, and he will be My son. I will never take My love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor. I will set him over My house and My kingdom forever; his throne will be established forever (1 Chronicles 17:11-14).
What a great comfort to know that, after we have died, future generations will carry on the work that we have begun during our brief time here. We are part of something much bigger than our individual lives. Our family can continue to build the Kingdom of God. May they know the truth that God has revealed to us through Jesus.
- Is having a godly heritage something you have ever considered?
- How well do you know the history of your family?
- What do you hope for the coming generations of your family?
