THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE
Thomas said to Jesus, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:5-6
Many people agree that there is one God, even though they may want to call Him different names. But what they are wrong about is that we all, that is, Christians and members of all other religions, are worshipping the same God. Amazingly, even some Christians and Church leaders think so too! That's so not true! That you think you are worshipping God doesn't mean you are worshipping Him, it has to be according to the mode He prescribed.
Jesus is the way to the Father. He is the way because it is only His blood that was shed for the remission of sins and for man's redemption. He is the truth because He is the very Word of God: in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Jesus is the reality; He didn't just teach truth, He was and is the Truth.
And Jesus is the life. Yesterday, I taught on a topic titled "Life for life". Man lost the life of God when he ate the forbidden fruit, and it was necessary that blood be shed for him to regain that life, because life is in the blood. Jesus' blood that was shed is the source of our new life; and it is the very blood of God, because Jesus was God manifested in the flesh. No other blood can give zoe! Only Jesus can give life. Only Jesus can save! The world must know this!
