Don't Let Your Heart Be Troubled (John 14)

As a group, read John 14:1-7.

Jesus begins by saying, "Do not let your hearts be troubled."  Take a couple minutes and have several group members share the things that are currently troubling their hearts.  Spend some time praying for each other before you begin your discussion.

Why would someone's heart be troubled if they did not know "the way" to God?  Why is finding a relationship with God important?

What does it mean that Jesus is the only way?  What are other ways people try to take to God?

How can the certainty that Jesus is the only way to God help to comfort those with troubled hearts?  How does certainty about the future alleviate stress in the present?

Because you are depending on Jesus, what stress in your life are you free to let go?

Who do you know that needs certainty about their future?  How can you use the message of Jesus to help those around you let go of their stress?
