John 14:1-3

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.”

This is such a comforting message from Jesus.

And yet there are so many people who fear death. I’ve met many in my ministry to the sick and elderly. And no wonder…with so much fear having been preached to them over their lives!

And yet Jesus preached over and over to not be afraid.

He showed us that life does not end…but is transformed!

Death is not an end but a doorway to new life.

Jesus promised that he would prepare a place for us.

Remember that scripture says that God is love (1 John 4:8). And it also says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).

So know that you are eternally loved!

Whatever you are struggling with now…remember that the Love that created you is with you…now and forever.

Nothing can stop transformation and new life from happening…if you are open to it!
