JOHN 14:1-11 - UNTROUBLED LIVING

 

What has troubled you lately?

  • The opinion of others?
  • The habits and actions of people?
  • The sickness or death of a loved one?
  • Financial woes and/or employment?
  • Marriage and/or Family?
  • School and/or Work
  • Acceptance by others?
  • Feeling unloved?
  • The future?
  • The past?
  • The present?
  • Not getting what you want?
  • Not wanting what you’ve got?
  • Fitting in?
  • Getting everything done?

Luke 10:38-42 – Mary and Martha

Martha troubled – Mary sitting at Jesus’ feet, hearing His Word. So, let us sit at Jesus’ feet this morning and hear His word concerning being troubled.

 

Vs. 1 – The disciples knew there were troubles and were concerned.

The word “troubled” means to shake or stir up.  Jesus is telling us not to be shaken or stirred up. I would also use the word, “worry”, because when were shaken or stirred up, we’re worried!

Usually when some says, “Don’t worry!” that does little to allay our fears. Jesus tells us that worry, fear, and being stirred up are matters of the heart.  We have a heart problem!

Jesus was not saying that the Apostle’s or our fears were not real. He was telling us that there is an antidote for a troubled heart. The antidote for a troubled heart is trust!

Jesus is talking to those who already believed or trusted in Him for salvation. This is something that every blood-bought believer needs to realize.  Faith does not end at salvation. It begins at salvation. “Trust God, trust me”!  

Jesus is God! Isaiah 40:25-26, 28-31 – no trust = sin!

TRUST HIM FOR A PLACE - Vs. 2

“My Father’s House” – Intimacy - Many rooms, not mansions

I go to prepare a place for you 1 Corinthians 5:21 – Gospel

If we can trust Jesus for a place in Heaven, can't we trust Him with the rest of our lives as well!  How we disappoint Him when we don't trust him!

TRUST HIS PROMISE - Vs. 3

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Psalm 116:15

TRUST HIS PREEMINENCE - Vss. 4-6

Vs. 6 - THE WAY - HE IS THE WAY - The way to Heaven

The way to Love – John 15:9,

The way to Joy – John 15:11

The way to Peace – John 14:27

The way to the Father – Hebrews 4:14-16

THE TRUTH - If you have Jesus, you have the truth. John 16:13-14

THE LIFE - If you have Jesus, you have life. John 3:16, John 10:10

Narrow-minded – True for salvation and Godly living.  Jesus is all we need.

TRUST HIS PERSONALITY - Vss. 7-10

Vs. 7 - Why does Jesus make this statement?

           Jesus is God. The Father is God.

           The person who has seen Jesus has seen God.

            He has God as his model.                                                                      

           Reading of Gospels is essential

 

TRUST HIS POWER - Vs. 11

Matthew 28:18-20

Ephesians 1:19-22
