KEY SCRIPTURE: John 14:6 ” Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.
The world has had a number of men who gave messages that was supposed to lead people to God. These men have been followed by many in different forms. The result is so many religions that makes people wonder which of these religions is true.
Our key scripture reveals an absolute, straight forward and an unambiguous declaration that leaves no one in doubt .The Lord JESUS said He is THE way. This definite article leaves no room for any other way. He said I am the way. No one has been so definite to make such an uncompromising and an unambiguous statement. What are His credentials to make Him speak this way?
Everything about His life makes Him stand out.
The birth and life of JESUS was prophesied thousands of years before He was born.(Gen 3:15, Deuteronomy 18:15.) Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” There are countless prophecies about him spread throughout the Old Testament. All these prophecies about His lifetime have been fulfilled..
The Bible reveals Jesus as God. John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. Now just consider what 1st Timothy 3:16 says about Him ” And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory”.
The Lord Jesus demonstrated in His lifetime that he is the way. He made statements like, I am the resurrection and the life(John 11:25) I am the light of the world (John 8:12) I am the alpha and omega.(Rev 1:8) ,I am the bread of life. (John 6:35). Besides these definite statements He did the impossible throughout His ministry period. He healed all the sick that were brought to Him.(Matt 18:16,Matt 4:24)He raised the dead after 4 days (John 11:44)He fed over five thousand people with just five loaves and two fishes. Time and space cannot permit me to state most of what He did.
Besides all these He gave Himself up to be killed and on the third day He resurrected from the dead (1st Corinth 15:3&4, Luke 24:23)
His words have brought peace of mind to countless millions and totally transformed men from all forms of miserable lives. Immoral men and women have been changed. Completely mad people have been restored to a sound mind. Armed robbers have been saved, even those who appeared good on the outside but sinful and hurting within have all been saved, and so what about you?.

Jesus I accept you as the Lord over my life. You died for me and you rose on the third day. Lord Jesus I welcome you into my life today as my Lord and saviour.
Romans 10:9-10 ” That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”.
Titus 2:11-12 ” For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world”;
