Unlimited: Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and the Life

I am the way, and the truth, and the life (John 14:6, NIV).
“I am the way.” Christ spans the distance between God and the sinner. Many of us would gladly manufacture a ladder of our own, and… climb up to God. But that is impossible… By faith, we need to grasp the the glorious truth that Christ has come all the way down to sinners… Christ is not merely a Guide who came to show men the right way to God: he is himself the Way to the Father…
“I am the truth.” Christ is the full and final revelation of God… Truth is not to be found in a system of philosophy, but in a Person. Christ… reveals God and exposes our unworthiness. In him we find “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3)… Christ is not merely a Teacher who came to reveal to the human race a doctrine regarding God: He is himself the Truth about God.
“I am the life.” Christ is the Deliverer from death. He is not just a doctor (John 10:10)… The whole Bible teaches us that we are is spiritually lifeless… But the person who believes in Christ has passed out of death into life (John 5:24). “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life” (John 3:36).

Eli’s Reflection: There has never been any other religion whose founder has made anything close to these claims of Christ. They transcend every other philosophy, every teaching, and every need. Because Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, he is able to supply for your needs today. Trust him.
