Each day, I reflect upon a word or phrase from the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
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. (John 14:1-6)
PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU: What comforting words. Jesus is telling us once again that He is in this for the long haul. He is with us now, and will stay with us until we are called home to Him.
Many us of battle feelings of unworthiness. We’re broken and we know it. We might be able to find a human being or two to love us, but can we really expect Jesus to love us…forever? Even after the countless times we have strayed from the path? Despite how often we doubt? Regardless of the many times our faith wavers?
Today He locks eyes with us and lets us know that there is nothing we could ever do to make Him love us less…nothing. His faith in us has never wavered. His faith is such that He has already prepared a place for us in heaven. We have advance reservations, so that where He is we also may be.
