WESLEYAN BIBLE STUDY WITH
DR. THOMAS Q. ROBBINS
Week of May 9 - 15, 2021
God has a place prepared for just you! That’s his promise. The descriptive picture of his care in the New Testament book of John, chapter 14, verses 1-7 is enhanced when we realize that Jesus is the one who has prepared this place for us and at the proper time “will come and receive us so that where he is we may be also.”
Just living here on earth, in this time and space dimension, has a genuine for us. Here on earth we experience all that God has for us but it’s preparation for the eternity God has for us – it’s not the whole picture at all. Oh, we may feel fear when we go into the basement, take a test, or start a new job, but we don’t have to be afraid of our ultimate future when we know and live for the One who has prepared a place for us.
Our future is secure in Jesus Christ and that’s the reason we are not to be afraid of anything in this world. Scripture tells us that God has prepared a place for us…. That’s why we don’t have to be afraid. We have a confirmed reservation that God has a dwelling place for each of us.
What a beautiful reality. Can you imagine how wonderful that is? Jesus told us in Scripture that He’s prepared this special place just for you and for me. Yet we’re sometimes overcome by fear. But here’s a truth to remember, fear always involves a future moment -- but God had taken care of our future! Today’s message, Don’t Be Afraid, shows how God has made this preparation for us.
Dr. Robbins calls this lesson, “Don’t Be Afraid.” The text is from John 14:1-7.
