25 Names of Christ Celebration - Day 17
I have to be honest, I've wrestled for over a week about what to write for today's post. No matter how hard I try, I can't come up with a way to explain this scripture. I think that's because it is just so perfectly succinct as it is.
Christ Jesus is the only Way to the Father. Christ Jesus is the only Truth that leads us to the Father. Christ Jesus is the only source of Life with the Father. There is no other way to the Father--only Jesus.
When you read this verse in context it is so abundantly clear. So, today I encourage you to do just that, take a couple of minutes to read John 14:1-7:
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
If we know Christ Jesus, really know Him, we also know the Father. Because Jesus is the only Way.
