January 25 – John 14:1-6

Our final glimpse of Philip occurs in the upper room on the evening before the crucifixion. Jesus speaks the words that bring comfort to us today. In the midst of confusion and anxiety, Jesus spoke of the “dwelling place” God has prepared for those who believe in him. Thomas, no doubt, spoke for the entire group when he asked Jesus to be more specific about these things (14:6).

When you feel restless, troubled, or despondent, remember the words Jesus said in 14:1: “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me.”
