Jesus Comforts His Disciples

Jesus Comforts His Disciples

When Jesus first told His disciples that he would soon be leaving them, they were greatly perplexed and asked Him all kinds of questions. The thought of Him leaving them was almost too much to bear.

He comforted them with the words, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”1

All the promises and words of comfort that Jesus left with His disciples are available to us today as well. “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of Truth.”2

“It’s to your advantage that I go away, for if I don’t go away the Divine Comforter will not be released to you. But after I depart, I will send him to you.”3

Christ left us with a legacy of peace. “I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!”4
