Jesus' Comfort
Peace and Assurance - Jesus makes some promises to His disciples. He tells them that He will be leaving soon. He tells them that He is going to prepare a place for them and He gives them the assurance that He will return for them. Such promises give us a measure of peace and assurance - even today.
