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 you don’t know the way, remember that Jesus is the way. When you can’t tell the lies from the truth, remember that Jesus is the truth. And when you can’t find meaning in your life, remember that Jesus is the life.
Jesus is saying that He is the road, the journey, the way to the Father. His life paved the pathway to the Father. His shed blood left a trail for us to follow. As we walk with Jesus, He leads us on a journey. Though there are many twists and turns along the way, there is but one destination. Jesus will faithfully lead us home to heaven.
Jesus is all truth. He is altogether true. There is no falsehood in Him or about Him. He speaks the truth and His life was true to His purpose. You can take Him at His word. His word is His bond. His promises are forever. When He says that He will get you to the Father, you can count on Him being able to do it.
And Jesus is the life, the fullness of what it means to be alive, real and genuine, active and vigorous. “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” John 1:4. His life is the model for us to follow. His life gives meaning to our life. His life was payment for our life eternal. His life truly made a way to the Father for all those who believe.
