He saw you there
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:2-3
When Jesus spoke of coming again “for you,” He wasn’t casually speaking. He was deeply, passionately, earnestly, and with an everlasting love speaking of your future with Him.
And though He was speaking from the upper room where the disciples were gathered for the passover, Christ was looking past His death on the cross and was looking into eternity.
And you were there.
Yes, even from that furnished room in Jerusalem, Christ saw you free at last from the things of earth: tears, sorrow, pain, sin, and the fear of death.
And He rejoiced in your garment of salvation, your robe of righteousness, your Heavenly glory and your having “put on immortality.”
And Christ, the omnipotent one, knowing that neither your eye nor ear nor heart had any knowledge of the things that had been prepared for you, knew you would be forever satisfied with His goodness.
Yes, dear one of Christ, Jesus spoke concerning His coming again before He left the upper room for the cross.
But you were in His heart.....in His very soul.....and you were beholding His glory.
So, dear loved one of Christ, as you journey through this barren earth, do not distrust His love.
For it was because of His great love for you that He suffered all for you.
And it will be because of His great love for you that He’ll not leave you behind....
away from glory.....away from Him. by M. Robbins
