Jesus’s disciples felt confused when he talked about going away. “You know the way to the place where I am going,” He told them. Thomas voiced the question burning in all their minds: “Lord we don’t know where you’re going. So how can we know the way? Jesus’s answer was simple and direct: I am the way, the truth and the life. No one goes to the Father except through me.”
It may be popular to claim that many paths lead to God, but that contradicts what the Bible teaches. Jesus taught that access to God can only come through placing our faith in His sacrificial death and resurrection. The way is clear and open to everyone, blocked only by a person’s unwillingness to believe. There is no alternate route. People who denounce the gospel as narrow minded miss the wonder that God provided a way for us to come to Him at all.
Jesus is more than the path to salvation and eternal life: He shows us the way to live a life of true meaning and purpose. Nurturing our relationship with Him and following the directions in God’s Word are the only way to travel. We may be temped to let our life be guided by sources that seem more exciting, but we’ll only end up feeling confused.
Jesus answered him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one goes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
I want to wish you all a Happy Easter as we celebrate the Life, the death and Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ , The Son of Almighty God.
For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him shall not perish but have Ever Lasting Life. John 3:16.
Love and Care

That is sooo very true - some ways might "seem" more exciting - but they usually (always) lead us to areas we wish we'd never gone. His ways are the only way to peace and happiness and truth.ReplyDelete
Truly a magnificent God we have. I live because of His 'I am'. A blessed Easter to you and your loved ones.ReplyDelete
