“Trust Me; I Do Not Lie” (John 14: 1 – 3, ESV) by Carley Evans


Jesus tells us not to be troubled. In His Father’s house are many rooms. Jesus makes each room ready for one of His brothers or sisters, for one of His Father’s children. Where He is, we will be eventually. Jesus says that if this were not true, He would not say it.

Jesus promises that He will come back to “take [us] to [Himself].”

Therefore, we are not to worry. No fretting is allowed. Instead, Jesus commands us to believe in God, and to also believe in Him. ‘Trust Me,’ says Jesus. ‘I do not lie.’

” ‘And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?’ ” (Luke 11: 9 – 12)

Jesus reminds us that He is good; and He gives only good gifts. ‘Trust Me,’ says Jesus. ‘I do not lie.’
