Calming troubled hearts with trust and hope in Jesus.
John 14:1-14 Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.
Jesus never wanted us to have a life without trouble, but He promised that we could have an untroubled heart even in a troubled life.
Instead of giving into a troubled heart, Jesus told them to firmly put their trust in God and in Jesus Himself. This was a radical call to trust in Jesus just as one would trust in God the Father, and a radical promise that doing so would bring comfort and peace to a troubled heart.
“What signalizes Him, and separates Him from all other religious teachers, is not the clearness or the tenderness with which He reiterated the truths about the Father’s love, or about morality, and justice, and truth, and goodness; but the peculiarity of His call to the world is, ‘Believe in Me.’” (Maclaren)
