Give Up

today's reading.
John 13:36-14:7    Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, where are you going?"Jesus answered him, "Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterward"...
John 13:36-38

think about it.
What claims does Jesus make about Himself? What does He promise to do (14:1-4)? What does it mean for you to know Jesus is "the way, the truth and the life" (14:6)? Why is this a hard statement for people in our world to accept?

the blog.
Jesus tells us "Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me" (John 14:1). A simple command yet one that we, many times, struggle to put into practice. Well, I can be pretty good at hanging on to my concerns and troubles and I'm guessing you probably do that sometimes too? So let's take Jesus at His word. 

What can we do today to put this verse into practice--to give up our burdens, our concerns, and those things that frighten us? What does not letting your heart be troubled look like? Tami W.
