When Jesus made the statement “Let not your hearts be troubled” in John 14, Luther says this is the most consoling sermon the Lord preached on earth. It is the sermon preached at many funerals and the consolation of the sorrowful and sick.. When people are very sick, close to death, they love to turn to this sermon. Troubled hearts make bad worse and are dishonorable to God. Let not our hearts be troubled. May we have joy in the journey and the peace that passes understanding because of the sins forgiven and new life in Christ.  Let us be joyful as we journey to the place prepared for us.
