John 14:1-6

The Word of God

Jesus said to the disciples, 'Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house there are many dwelling-places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.' Thomas said to him, 'Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?' Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'

    • Perhaps I am sometimes like Thomas: asking my question of Jesus while thinking that I am to be left on my own to work things out. Lord, help me to listen to your promises, to receive your assurances, to let you remove troubles from my heart. May I bear in mind that you are with me.

    • This is Jesus’ farewell discourse. He speaks with words of encouragement, kindness and promise to the disturbed disciples. There are no maps, no compasses, only Jesus. He promises to be the lodestar, the true guide. He will be our gateway into loving communion with the Father.
    • Jesus, inclusion is the nature of God. No one is blocked entry to his dwelling place. Inspired by you, may I be more open, more tolerant, more appreciative of difference Let me trust that in the end all the rooms of God’s house will be full.

    • Jesus knows we do experience many heartaches. He sympathizes with us. He says, ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled.’ He is full of encouragement. Though all sorts of things go wrong for us, we are not abandoned. We are destined for a blessed future, because he will come again and take us to himself.
    • Lord, I often wonder what way to go in life. May I always turn to you for guidance, and whatever way I choose, may I try to live out of your commandment to love.

    • One of the big identity statements of Jesus is in these words of the gospel. Without any ifs or buts, he declares himself as the way, truth and life. God is accessible through him because he is God. These words are a gift: that with him we have the deepest personal security in life, knowing that all can be found in him.
    • Jesus brings inner peace. Even in face of his impending death and what they will have to endure in the world, he does not want their hearts to be troubled. He wants them to be at peace because he will not abandon them. He does not abandon us.
    • He is the way: where he goes, we follow. He is the truth: all other claims to truth are measured by him. He is the life: we have true life in us, the spring of water welling up into everlasting life, through him.
    • As I listen to Jesus I hear him say, 'Peace be with you', 'Do not worry', and now, ' Do not let your heart be troubled.' I speak to Jesus confidently, describing what it is that weighs me down, listening for his answer as he calls me back to a new perspective.
    • I sometimes feel like Thomas, not sure of the way I am going. Jesus reminds me that I am not setting out on my own, but travel with him who is the way.
