Verse: “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my father is. From now on you do know him and you have seen him!”
Insight: Because it is the Fathers desire that all share in eternity with Him and that we all have an abundant life, Jesus does not leave this truth open for interpretation. I like to read these verses as if Jesus is talking with quiet intensity. Jesus is not speaking out of pride or arrogance (against his character) but rather with complete clarity. This is a reminder to us that though what we do is important, ultimately it does not determine where we spend eternity.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for praying the price for my access to the Father. Thank you that it takes merely a choice of accepting you to begin living in fullness of life right now. Help me reflect your clarity with the right sprit with those I am in relationship with. Amen.
