The Way To The Father

In review of John 14:6 it says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life!” Jesus answered. “Without me, no one can go to the Father."

Bottom Line:
Jesus is the only way to the Father.

What this means to me:
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life; my way to the father is through him and him alone.

Jesus' words show that the way to eternal life, though unseen, is secure, as secure as my trust in Him. He has prepared the way to eternal life. Jesus says he is the only way to God the Father. I’m sure some will argue that this way is too narrow. However In reality, it is wide enough for the whole world, if the world chooses to accept it. So Instead of worrying about how limited it sounds to have only one way, we should be saying, "Thank you, God, for providing a sure way to get to you!"

As our way, Jesus is our path to the Father. As the truth, he is the reality of all God's promises. As the life, he joins his divine life to ours, both now and eternally. Jesus is, in truth, the only living way to the Father.

Since Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, if I follow him I will never go wrong. Cling to the Bible and saturate myself with the truths found within it. Dare to make my life the best it can be with the help of Almighty God. The Bible and human history reveal stories of dreamers who change the world by acting on their God-given dreams, people who dared to imagine the impossible regardless of what those around them said.

Joseph dreamed his way from the pit to the palace. Moses took up God’s vision to liberate the Jewish people from Egyptian bondage. Daniel dreamed his way into the knowledge of his country’s future. Abraham Lincoln’s dream ended slavery in America.

Today I will consider what my dream is? I can be assured that I can make it a reality because God has called me to it. What He brings me to, He will bring me through. So stop looking at all the reasons why I can’t accomplish my goals and start moving toward the prize that God has in store for me in Jesus’ name.
