Get ready BCC and OKC for our 4th annual Summer Buddies math & reading camp!
For the past several years we have been serving families during the “off season” so that students can stay in the game academically!
Summer time is fun time! And who says that learning has to be boring? I love watching the kids literally run into the building to learn each day! Their faces lite up with excitement as they get into their lessons. Thanks to our team, the kids we serve are better prepared to start the new school year.

I hope you have been encouraged as we’ve been taking a look at Jesus’ words shared with His disciples in the Upper Room on the night before He went to the Cross. Their hearts were troubled and Jesus sought to comfort and counsel them, to encourage them. We’re going to take one more look at John 14:1-7 this morning because it includes an important conversation Jesus had with Thomas that has great relevance for our day. Let’s read our Scripture and then we will see what we can learn. Continue reading “Many Ways? John 14:1-7”
Last week we began our study of John 14 by focusing on what Jesus said to His disciples, “Let not your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.” The disciple’s hearts were already troubled when Jesus spoke those words. We spent quite a bit of time last week looking at those times when Jesus’ own heart was troubled. Three times in the Gospels we find the same Greek word that Jesus used, “???????” (tarasso), which is translated as “troubled” in John 14:1, to describe the condition of Jesus’ own heart. Jesus’ heart was troubled at the tomb of Lazarus, it was troubled when He spoke about one of His disciples betraying Him, and He was troubled when He contemplated the Cross that was drawing near. Jesus’ heart didn’t stay troubled and our hearts, though they will no doubt be troubled at times during our lives, do not have to remain troubled either. This morning I want us to continue in our study of John 14:1-7. In these verses Jesus gives us reasons why we can look beyond the troubles of this life to the assurances of God for His people.

If we ever want to learn more about our heart then the Bible is a great place to start. By studying God’s Word you won’t learn about the anatomy and physiology of the heart. There’s not a verse in the Bible that tells us that the heart is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body. None of the Gospels speak about the four chambers of the heart. The Prophets don’t mention the two pumping units that move our blood from our heart through nearly 60,000 miles of veins that make up our bodies. To learn how the heart functions you would need a class on cardiology, but we all know that there is much more to our hearts than merely its function.
