“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me,” John 14:1.
I love security! And I want all the security I can have in my life, financial security, job security, marital security and homeland security! It feels good to know things are secure. In today’s passage, we see the greatest security a person can have, spiritual security. Is there a greater security than the security of the believer? This is a protection that is sealed by the promises of Almighty God! In John 14:1-3, we see Jesus promising us three things that serve as keys to our security in Christ.
1. We need not be troubled. Our belief in God and His Son Jesus is the starting point of our spiritual security. If you have placed your faith in Jesus for salvation, you are secure.
2. Jesus is in the process of preparing a place for the believers. Our security is seen in His work. He is preparing our eternal home because He guarantees our arrival if we are in Him.
3. He is coming back for us. The promise that He will return again to bring us to the place He has prepared is a positive guarantee. A promise from God is a promise that will never be broken.
JUST A THOUGHT
Do you rest in the knowledge that Jesus already seals your spiritual security?
