Sarah and I had a safe and relaxing trip to Colorado to see her family. I’m so grateful for your prayers while we were away. I’m also grateful to Pastor Dan and Pastor Brandon who led our worship service last week. I’ve heard from several how moving the morning was. What a blessing to have so many gifted and generous leaders among us at FFC.
This coming Sunday, I’ll be teaching out of a very familiar passage – John 14:1-3.
Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.
A troubled heart is one disturbed by inner or outer turmoil. A troubled heart is common to all human beings, unbelievers and believers alike, and according to the text, even Jesus’ disciples experienced a troubled heart.
I wonder, is there something troubling your heart?
In John 14:1-3, Jesus gives us three remarkable promises to help us persevere against the doubt and despair we daily face in this troubling world. His promise is based on two little words: “I will.”
