John 14:6 (NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Imagine if you will…..
You have been separated from your Father ever since you were born, and now you get word from far away that you are to inherit a beautiful home from him. You receive a description of the house, the gardens, and a general idea of the route.
There are directions about how to get there but there is one provison: you must be accompanied by someone who knows your Father and can identify you.
Disappointment and loneliness overwhelm you, and you look up at the stars and beg for help. A stranger stands beside you. ”I’ll take you," he offers, and in the dark, he holds out his hand to you.
You hesitate to take it. You’re not sure if this is for real but you nervously put your hand in his. As you do, you feel deep, rough scars. You draw back, but He says with gentle patience:
"I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
Instantly you know you have a guide who will take you all the way, and identify you to your Father.
Dear Lord, we thank You that You will guide us through this life and bring us to our Heavenly Father. Help us share Your love with someone who needs it today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
