14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
What does it say
The disciples are troubled because of Jesus departure, but Jesus assurance to them is that their belief in God will sustain them. His assurance is that heaven has many mansions, that it’s the truth, and he’s not lying. He’s going there to prepare a place for them, so don’t worry. Jesus says that he’s coming back for them, but reminds that that the way to where they are going is the same way he is going- the cross.
This is the answer to life- die to self and live for Christ- there is no other way- there is no other plan
