Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 NIV
Driving to Indiana last week, my GPS took me via Lakes Ontario and Erie. The return trip brought me another straight across Pennsylvania into New Jersey, then to I-95 home. Two different ways with the same result.
After the Last Supper, Jesus explains he must go away but will return so they can go with him. Thomas asks, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” In reply, Jesus answers he is "The Way." Jesus doesn't provide multiple routes for getting to the Father. There is no northern and southern route to Heaven, there is just one way, and it is through him.
Father, we give thanks for the way to you offered in your Son Jesus Christ. Help us this day reject evil and follow in Christ’s righteous path. Open our hearts and minds to the Holy Spirit for clarity and guidance. Amen.
