He has Risen! Alleluia!
Today's devotion is based on John 13:2,3, and 6: "My Father's house are many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. . . . I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
The night before he died on the cross to wipe away the world's sin with his holy blood, Jesus spoke about heaven to his disciples. But fear not, disciples! "I will come back for you one day and lead you by the hand to the rooms in my Father's mansion. I am your only way to heaven. Believe this. Believe in me!"
Are you having a bad day? Think about this and smile: right now, Jesus is preparing a room for you in the Father's big heavenly house. When he is ready for you, and not before, Jesus will come for you, either when your heart stops beating or judgment day's trumpet starts blasting. Jesus' nail-pierced hand will take your hand and lead you safely out of this vale of tears and sorrow to your Father in heaven and his mansion. You'll live there forever in perfect happiness and joy with all of God's children. Believe this! Believe in Jesus!
Please pray with me: Lord Jesus, thank you for all you did on this earth. Because of you, I know your love and promises are true. Amen.
