Day 9 – Through Jesus

1“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:1-6 ESV)

Let’s get this straight, notice that Jesus didn’t say

  • he was going to show us the way,

  • that he was going to tell us the truth,

  • nor that he was going to tell us about life.

He said:

  • He IS the way.

  • He is the Truth.

  • He is the Life.

It’s hard because what he’s saying is a paradox.

  • His way is the way of the cross.

  • His truth is to love those who revile him.

  • His life is to be laid down for those who are unworthy of God’s grace.

Jesus came to fulfill the way of God, to be the truth of God, to be the life God wants to give to his people. And when we say Jesus lived a perfect life. We are saying that his entire being was perfectly oriented toward the way, truth, and life of God. His being was sinless as a result. He is the way to God. He is the truth of God. He is the Life of God.

Do you want to come to God, our Father in heaven? Then we need to have a real relationship with Jesus believing in him as our way, as our truth, and our life. Without a relationship with Jesus all people are excluded from getting to where God is because the way to God is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the ONLY road that leads to heaven. Eternal life with God is through faith in Jesus Christ alone because he is the way.

Pray today that we can have a real relationship with Jesus, as our way, our truth, and our life.
