John 14:6, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'”
When life deals us a blow; when all around us seems to fall apart; when what we know to be the truth is not what others know; when the storms rain upon us, Jesus tells us, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”
I am the way – Some of you may have lost your way. Maybe you feel off life’s path. The purpose and plan for your life seems to have been tossed aside and nothing makes sense. Jesus is calling you. He is telling you that He is the way. You are not lost. Follow Him.
and the truth – I’ve been there too. People are saying one thing and you know the truth and it isn’t what they are saying. Know that Jesus has the truth and He will help you reveal the truth. His way is the best way. Don’t fret, just put it in His hands to handle.
and the life – Sin is death. Jesus is life. Even if there weren’t a Heaven or Hell, I’d still follow God. His way makes sense. His way brings peace, comfort, understanding, and goodness. Jesus came so that we would have life. It is His promise to us.
No one comes to the Father – A very important truth in salvation, Jesus is the way to the Father and we do not get to Heaven except through Him.
It is a simple verse and one many know by memory. Living it out, is not simple. Think about what Jesus is to you today. Take Him at His word – He is the way; He is the truth; He is the life.
