1. Heaven is Our True Home!

Jesus had been speaking of His imminent departure, of His crucifixion, and the disciples were in a sombre frame of mind. They must have wondered what would become of them! They were deeply disturbed! Jesus said to them: Let not your heart be troubled


  • They were cheerless and miserable, because He would soon be gone, and three years of life spent together on the road would soon be ended!
  • They were embarrassed and humiliated, because of their own selfishness and pride, for they had been arguing among themselves about who would get the prominent places when He came into His kingdom!
  • They were confused and bewildered, because they had just been told that one of them would betray the Master!
  • They were wavering and unsteady in their faith for they could not understand how someone who is about be crucified could be the promised Messiah!
