John 14:1-7 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whiter I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.”
As we continue to gain traction in our lives in 2021, we must be constantly cognizant of the powerful truths of our potent Saviour. The most transformative of these truths is contained in 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.”
There is one way to salvation, and no way to get there except through the power of a Saviour. Christ is that Saviour, and He is the way, the truth, and the life. And in spite of the insecurity and doubt expressed by Thomas, we can know both the destination and the way because it has already been secured by the power and the presence of the Son of God Himself.
Our hearts should not be troubled by the challenges that swirl around us in 2021 if we believe in God the Father and God the Son. They have already paved the way for us by preparing a place in heaven for those who believe. Christ came to be the way, the truth, and the life; and to show us the way, the truth, and the life. By knowing the Father, we know the Son. By knowing the Son, we know the Father. By serving them and clinging to their truths, we enjoy both a temporal and an eternal security that cannot be matched by any earthly mechanism – not by a government, not by a vaccine, not by an investment plan, not by a boss, not by a country, not even by a friend, or a family, or a church. Christ is the way, the only way, to purpose, to fulfillment, to joy, and to security.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO SHED OUR TROUBLES BY THOROUGHLY TRUSTING IN CHRIST IN 2021. He is the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by Him.
