KJV - In my Father's House there are many mansions, if it were not so , I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
NIV - In my Father's House there are many rooms, if it were not so , I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
Demonstrations are always more effective than explanations. Kirby vacuums do not sell well because they are on display, in-home demonstrations are the key to their success. Explaining a repair is not the same as demonstrating the process of correction that has an empowering effect. In countless movies and stories, we have all seen the sleuth expose the murderer by demonstrating the motive, the clever scheme, and evil deed.
It is not enough to say we love the Lord. It is not enough to say we love our children and our brothers and sisters God created and placed in our lives. We have to demonstrate it. Christianity on display has little effect. Telling someone about the Lord is not the same as demonstrating His love in your treatment toward them. The climactic eternal truth in Jesus' atoning blood shed for our sins is the ultimate demonstration of God's love.
Thomas's ensuing query, "How can we know the way?" was before He went to the Cross. Sacrificing His Son for our sakes shows us the way, and obligates us to do the same in a world full of twisted motives, nefarious schemes. and evil deeds. His love will always shine through.
Today, your faith will be tested and you will have to answer whether you are a shop window display or a demonstration of God's love.
