Day 23 - The Way, The Truth, The Life

Read: John 14:1-7 

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6

As I continually get older, I feel like I am really just now beginning to truly value the help and advice of those who are wiser than me. I also realize that the moment I stop learning will be the moment that I stop growing spiritually, mentally and emotionally. It’s very mature to follow people who know the way of life, who know important truths about it and who can help you live a healthy life both physically and spiritually.

In John 14:6, we read one of the clearest declarations from God the Son: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This is a very beautiful declaration by Jesus Christ. He doesn’t just help you or teach you, but He is the Way, He is Life and He is Truth. Jesus is not just a good way to God or one of several ways to Him, but He is in fact the only way to the Father, because He is the only One who has perfect communion with God the Father.

Jesus is the Way that leads to life eternal; all other paths lead to death and destruction. He is the Life, and anything outside of Him is death. Jesus Christ is the Truth, and everything outside of Him is a lie. He is all and all, and He demands to be all and all in you. You must realize that He has to possess all of you, and you can’t hold on to anything. When you believe this, then you have the ability to be used in extraordinary ways!

PRAY: Take the time to truthfully answer these questions: Is Jesus the Way that I follow? Is He my Truth? Is He my Life? You have to truly believe this and live this yourself if you want to effectively share it with others.

ACT: Write this statement down 14 times in honor of John 14; “I believe Jesus is the only Way.” You have to daily settle this in your own heart. It’s hard to share with someone else if you’re struggling in your belief about who Jesus is.
