Thomas Goodwin – The Love of Jesus Christ for You

20 May


1 Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father ‘s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going. – John 14:1-5

It is as if [Jesus] had said, “The truth is, I cannot live without you, I shall never be quiet till I have you where I am, that so we may never part again; that is the reason of it. Heaven shall not hold me, nor my Father’s company, if I have not you with me, my heart is set upon you; and if I have any glory, you shall have part of it.”
