John 14:1-14

Jesus challenged His followers then, and now:

  • Don’t worry
  • Trust me
  • Believe that I am God, either by my words or works

Jesus also gave them, and us, promises:

  • I will be preparing for you a place in Heaven
  • I will come to get you and take you home with me
  • I will give you what is needed to accomplish the work

And it all comes down to what you do with this statement from Jesus:

“I am the way, the truth and the life”
