The Way, The Truth, and The Life

Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me". I wonder if we understand what Jesus means by that statement.

The Way:

Let's say you are lost and can't find your way home. I give you a phone with a GPS app, and say to you, the GPS will show you how to get home.

You believe the GPS has the true and correct directions to get you home, so you listen to it and follow it's instructions perfectly. Because it is the way home.

The Truth:

Jesus is our GPS to our eternal home with our Father. Unlike the man-made GPS, he will not guide us to an incorrect location. He is not programmed by man, but by God.

Jesus said in John chapter 12 verse 49, "I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment, what to say and what to speak".

The Life

The life is home. Eternal life with God our Father and his Son Jesus, for all who believe the words Jesus came to deliver to us from The Father.

In John chapter 6 verse 33, Jesus said, "It is the Spirit who gives life, the flesh is no help at all. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life".

Who or what do you trust?

Jesus is the only GPS that has never, and will never guide us to an incorrect location.

Proverbs: chapter 4 verse 13 says, "Hold onto instruction; do not let go. Guard it, for it is your life".

Jesus was and is sent by God to give us instructions. The gospel of Jesus is the teaching(Doctrine) of God. God was in his Son teaching us how we need to live, in order to live at peace with God and avoid the wrath of God.

This is why it is called "The Good News". We don't have to be subject to the wrath of God, which comes upon the children of disobedience, according to the word of God. God sent Jesus to teach us how to be obedient to him.

This is why God said, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, listen to him". (Mark 9:7, Luke 9:35)

There is no way without Jesus because there is no truth without Jesus. Therefore, there is no life without Jesus.
