Charles Stanley - Right Thinking About Death And Resurrection
The night before Jesus died He said one of the most comforting things He could possibly have said to those disciples. Here's what He said in this fourteenth chapter of John, "Do not let your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me". And then He said to them, "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you". Then He said, "If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again to receive you to Myself, that where I am, there ye may be also". Which was His way of comforting them for the simple reason He was about to go to the cross the next day.
