Victory Vitamin Blog – John 14:3

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

-John 14:3 NIV

 

God has always wanted to be with His people.  God created the world, the Garden of Eden, and Adam and Eve with that goal in mind.  We were created to be in communion WITH God.  Adam and Eve disobeyed God and so Sin has destroyed what God desires.  Sin and perfection cannot be united.  Thanks be to God, that He became Immanuel, “God with us” and died to pay the price for all sins.  He is with us now in the Word and in the Lord’s Supper to strengthen us while we wait to be with the Lord forever.  And that’s Jesus’ promise in the verse above.  He will come and take us to be with Him eternally in heaven.  It will be unlike anything we have ever experienced or could ever imagine.  We will be in perfection and peace, united with our Maker for eternity.  Until then, God is with us in the Bible, the bread, and the wine.  Through Word and sacrament we remain in Him until we are with him forever.  God cannot lie, and Jesus’ promise in John 14:3 gives us hope, happiness and peace while we wait for His return.
