JESUS COMFORTS HIS DISCIPLES
14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God. Believe in me also. 2 There are many rooms in my Father’s house. If this were not true, would I have told you that I am going there? Would I have told you that I would prepare a place for you there? 3 If I go and do that, I will come back. And I will take you to be with me. Then you will also be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”
JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER
5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going. So how can we know the way?”
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really know me, you will know my Father also. From now on, you do know him. And you have seen him.”
8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father. That will be enough for us.”
9 Jesus answered, “Don’t you know me, Philip? I have been among you such a long time! Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. So how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father? Don’t you believe that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. The Father lives in me. He is the one who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say I am in the Father. Also believe that the Father is in me. Or at least believe what the works I have been doing say about me. 12 What I’m about to tell you is true. Anyone who believes in me will do the works I have been doing. In fact, they will do even greater things. That’s because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do anything you ask in my name. Then the Father will receive glory from the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name. I will do it.
1. Find John 14:1-14 in your Bible and read these words of God’s truth slowly several times.
2. Highlight or circle the words that stand out to you. Ponder on these words.
3. How close is Jesus to His Father in Heaven? (see verse 10)
4. We know from Scripture that Jesus prayed with His Father in Heaven ALL the time. He knew and carried out His Father’s will through the power of the Holy Spirit in Him….How can we know God’s will more clearly every day? How can we carry out His Will for our lives?
DAILY QUESTION for LISTENING PRAYER: Almighty God, what is your will for me today? (Ask this question daily……Be still and listen……..Write or draw below what you hear. Repeat daily. Notice where God is leading you.)
