John 14 : 6 The way to the Father Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me"
Jesus had been speaking to his disciples and encouraging them to be not troubled but believe in God and in Him also. He went to tell them in His Father's house were many rooms and that He was going away to prepare them a place. He then told them he would come again to take them to this place Himself.
vs. 1-5 "Don't let your heart be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if not, I would have told you. I am going away to prepare a place for you. If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also. You know the way to where I am going.
Lord, Thomas said, "we don't know where you're going, How can we know the way"?
Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me"
vs. 7 Jesus says "If you know me, you will also know my Father. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him".
The words of Jesus are very powerful and I can imagine the shock, bewilderment and maybe a lack of understanding at what Jesus was conveying to his disciples. Jesus tells the disciples that the only way to God is through Him and there is no other, the one and only true Living God.
There are so many false gods in our world today, people have many different types of faiths and beliefs that are not centred on Christ and reading this scripture it is clear that unless you believe in Jesus and in His Father, you are misled. God is a jealous God and wishes that only He is worshipped. Exodus 34:14 "Do not worship any other god for the Lord whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
Knowing that Jesus is the way to the Father means you can know Jesus, our Saviour who willingly gave of His own life that you could have yours. This starts with you acknowledging you are a sinner and accepting that Jesus Christ is Lord and will forgive your sins and wash and cleanse you so you can be restored back to the Father and start on your journey of relationship, knowing God and enjoying His promises.
In John 14 2-3, Jesus tells about the many rooms in His Father's house and says if these rooms were not there, he would tell us, he adds that He will go and prepare us a place and come back to take to this place. Alleluia, this is an amazing promise! Jesus will return for us, but in order for you to be able to go to this place, you must have a relationship with Jesus Christ and it starts from the moment you accept Him as your Saviour and live your life according to the Word of God in obedience to His commandments. God is Holy and He requires us to be holy too.
Don't delay, this promise is for you and Jesus awaits your response to His call today.
Dear reader, if you have not yet made the decision to follow Jesus and to accept Him as your Personal Saviour, I would prayerfully ask you to consider a relationship with Jesus. We all go through difficult and challenging times sometimes with no-one to turn to. In times such as those, you can turn to Jesus a trusted friend and adviser who will hear, listen, love, comfort and shepherd you. Prayer - O Most Faithful Father, we thank You for hearing us when we come to You with our prayers, requests and petitions. We can rest assured and comforted knowing that Your ear is always attentive to our cries. We feel privileged to know that You care so deeply for us. Hear our prayer O Most Merciful God. In Jesus name, Amen.
