Short Sermons For Funerals John 14;1,6

Short Sermons for Funerals John 14;1,6: John 14:1,6 (NIV) “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

Let’s pray: “Lord, we thank you for our dear [name’s] life.” We appreciate their kindness and excitement in helping others. We are grateful for the ways they practiced their religion through prayer, study, and worship. Let’s not forget how much they cared about our spiritual health and how much they loved this church family. We ask that as we go through this trying period, we will keep them in mind. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

  • God loves you.
  • God is in control.
  • God is your friend and cares about you. He wants what’s best for you, even when it seems like everything is going wrong or not working out the way that it should.
  • If you follow God’s word (the Bible) and accept Jesus Christ as your savior before it’s too late, heaven is real and can be yours when you pass away! God will take care of everything for us, so you’ll never have to worry about anything again! We shall never experience grief or pain again because it is a haven of happiness!

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

  • Jesus is the only way to heaven.
  • Jesus is the truth.
  • Life comes from having faith in Jesus and believing in him for salvation. (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10)

Jesus does not want any of us to perish, but he wants all of us to come home to heaven with him. The Bible teaches that Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we can be saved (Acts 4:12). There are many ways people have tried to get around this teaching over time, but none of them can stand up against Scripture because they all contradict one another or ignore parts of Scripture that don’t fit their view at all (like Romans 10).

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.

  • 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.

This is the promise that Jesus made to his disciples as he was preparing to ascend into Heaven. He tells them he will return one day with a mansion for each of them, and take them all back with him. This is a beautiful thought – going home with Jesus!

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.

After Jesus has said all of this, He tells the disciples that if He goes away, He will be coming back for them. This is a reference to the second coming and the rapture.

Most Christians at this time in history believe that Jesus will return for us at some point in the future when we least expect it (just like you did when your spouse came home from work today). Although we cannot predict when it will occur, we are prepared. This idea is supported by Jesus’ promise to His disciples, made after He returned from the grave, that He will return once more.

The reason why most Christians believe this is because they understand what happens between now and then:

  • The Great White Throne Judgment (Revelation 20:11–15) where all unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to hell forever;
  • A thousand years of peace on earth called “the millenium” (Revelation 20:6);
  • A new heaven and a new earth where God lives with people who have been saved from sin forever (Revelation 21).

Everyone can go to heaven when they die

When they pass away, anyone can enter paradise. For instance, Paul and the thief on the cross both died and entered paradise. Your relationship with God will determine whether you go to heaven or damnation. Jesus Christ is the means by which you can have a relationship with God. In this life, who you are counts more than what you do (1 John 3). Your connection to God is private and exists only between you and him. Each person must make a personal commitment before passing away since it is too late for anybody else to make a commitment after passing away (Romans 4:4).
