More Than Bread Devotional for 7/8/08

John 14:1-3
1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 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. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

When I was a kid, I used to say these verses(and quite a few others) every Friday night at my grandma’s house.  She taught me a lot about Scripture and gave me a foundation that still stands today.  I mentioned the wisdom that comes from knowing God’s Word yesterday.  Well, there is a steady, unshakable confidence in not only knowing His Word, but knowing it by heart.  My grandmother is the person I remember who most influenced me to hide God’s Word in my heart.  She has gone on to be with her Father in one of those mansions, and some day, I will go there too.  Because I believe in God and in Jesus Christ, His only Son.
