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”.
In our key scripture the Lord concluded His statement that no one comes to the Father except through Him. This is a very strong statement. The Lord knew there would be all sorts of teachings, doctrines and persons who would claim they are the way.
In our discussion in these series of studies we have established beyond doubt that Jesus is the way. That way is seen in the message of the gospel. (1st Corinthians 15:3, 4). John 3:16 states it so clearly that “for God so loved the world that He His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. Our Lord Jesus is the bridge between mankind and God. Accept Him today if you have not given your life over to Him.
We also learnt that our Lord Jesus is the truth. Jesus is reality. He forever abides faithful. The scripture says He is the same, yesterday, today and forever. The Lord has transformed countless millions over the years, who have come to Him for salvation. Many who have been tormented by various incurable diseases, have been graciously saved or healed at the mention of the name of Jesus. Jesus is the truth. He would forever honour what He says.
Thirdly we learnt that Jesus is the life. Men are not lost because they do not have and know moral doctrines, rather men are lost because they are spiritually dead. The need of man is life, a supernatural life that makes him a child of God. Jesus has given us His life, every man can become a benefactor, of His life.
Our Lord Jesus is indeed the only way to salvation and a successful life on this earth. I know that because He is my Lord my eternal home is forever assured.
Acts 4:10, 12 ” Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”.
Titus 2:14 ” Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works”.
