Jesus, faced with the certainty that he is already living his last hours on this earthly plane, decides to give the advice that in his opinion his disciples should have and gives it to them from the depths of his heart. Discover through this article and first hand everything related to I am the way, the truth and the life, according to John 14:6, the bible, and much more, do not stop reading it.
Jesus: I am the way
As related in the book of John chapter 14, verse 6 Jesus said to his disciples:
“I’m the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Jesus, the son of God, embodies all the infinite and benevolent power of his Father. For some he is one of the many paths that lead to God, but in reality this is not the case, Jesus is the only path that leads us to know the truth and through that truth we will reach eternal life.
In our modern and globalized era, such a statement that he is the only way to reach God would be somewhat offensive, but that statement has been able to remain valid for more than 20 centuries, as we can see in the following biblical passage:
“There is no other that can save us, since there is no other name under heaven, that has been given to men, in which we can be saved”
And finding himself under the image of a man, he humbled himself, became obedient until his death on the cross. For this reason, God also greatly glorified him, and gave him the name that is above every name, so that every knee should bow before Jesus, of those who are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth, and to Let every tongue reveal that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
“It is so, then, that there is only one God, and also only one mediator between God and men, and that is Jesus Christ”
I am the way, the truth and the life: Need for a path
Faced with so many adversities to which the human being is exposed, we feel the need to find the true path that leads us to God. To do this through the word Jesus takes us out of the ignorance of our faith, revealing to us all the spiritual guidance.
We move away from the true path to God motivated by our sins and it is imperative that we immediately return to that path.
“There are paths that for many men seem to be the correct one, but what they do not know is that this path leads them to death”
The revealed word in the bible says that we are all dying in our crimes and sins, and that it is only He who guarantees us eternal life instead of death. Parents who are sinners conceive children who have a high percentage of being sinners, since they will grow up in an environment of sin. Such was the case of Adam, that once he committed sin, God separated him from the path, and he chose to hide.
This happened to him because he was believing in the promises of Lucifer, which is why he no longer had the ability to understand the truth, he was not worthy of having a full spiritual life. God is good and merciful, but his law is rigorously applied.
When Jesus tells his disciples that they could not accompany him to the place where he was going, they were dismayed at such a statement since they understood that Jesus was referring to the announcement of his death.
Jesus: driver of the Father
Jesus is the vehicle to take us to the kingdom of heaven and meet the Father. For that He left first to prepare the place so that his people have a permanent place for their rest, at the time of leaving this earthly plane or for when he comes in search of him at the time of his second coming.
It is promised that absolutely everyone who believes in the word of God will one day be in the presence of Jesus. It is a pledged word that the Lord gave him as a guarantee that, if we stand firm in our beliefs and respect the commandments, we will be enjoying his company in heaven.
I am the way, the truth and the life: The enigma of sin
The biggest problem of the human race is that it is lost and without spiritual direction. He behaves like lost sheep, who got lost in the middle of the desert of spirituality, wandering aimlessly in the absence of Jesus’ guidance.
Sin completely devastated us, leading us to an underworld where we live in a state of depravity and promiscuity, which makes us feel guilty for all our actions. It is a total ruin product of our behavior, and in the sight of God, we are beings not worthy of heavenly grace. That is why we see so many natural disasters, diseases and pandemics that devastate humanity, what corresponds is to return to the path of good.
By the blood of Christ
In the book of the Hebrews mention is made of this topic and we can see it in the following fragment:
“This is how it is, my brothers, that we have all the freedom to enter the kingdom of God through the blood of Jesus Christ, through the new and living path that he opens for us. In addition to having a great priest above the house of God. We must approach him, with our hearts covered with sincerity, with the certainty that, through our faith, we will be purified and freed from evil. We will be bathed with pure water of life”
Our only chance to get back on God’s path is through Jesus on the cross. We should not see the son of God converted into a man, as the spiritual guide who came to earth to show all his sinful children the path they must travel to also obtain divine grace. In himself he is the way to his Father, there is no other alternative to free us from sin, but to follow the word of Jesus.
He is the lamb of the world without original sin, the only one who can carry and free us from our sins, since he died on the cross for all of us. Jesus died for us, so that we could have eternal life, paying with his death all our debts of sin.
Which is the perfect way?
Jesus, in addition to being the only way is the perfect way to reach the glory of heaven. Although we are sinners, we have Jesus to intercede for us before the Father because he is just. His son Jesus paved the way for us to reach the presence of God, and this path will never be closed for those who believe in the presence of God as the creator of the entire universe.
“No one has ever seen God; his only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.”
“God is only in spirit, and those who want to worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”
Jesus is the truth
The son of God is the full, definitive and complete revelation of his existence. In the book of John we find when Jesus tells his apostles: I am the truth, I will be the truth forever, and no one else will be the one to bring the good news.
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me”
On countless occasions, Jesus said that, in order to know the Father deeply, it was by having a true knowledge of the Father’s son. As we can find reflected in the book of John:
“If you know me, you also know my Father; and from this moment you know him and have seen him”
truth made flesh
Every time Jesus spoke the word, it wasn’t him, it was his Father speaking through him. Both mimic in a perfect union, the Father and the Son were one. The two understood each other as one, they were Jesus in his Father, and his Father in Jesus. What was being revealed of the glory of God was right there in front of him. The action, became flesh, was himself as a sanctuary before men, and his glory was the same glory of his only son.
“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth”
“No one has ever seen God; the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has made him known.”
I am the way, the truth and the life: Jesus is the life
It is in Jesus that we get true life, which has very clear and precise purposes for our transit on the earthly plane, as well as for those of us who will live in eternity. The demons are in the frequent search to try to take peace from humanity, on the other hand, and with their allies they cause diseases that take away their health, they try to rob the human being of the security that his life really counts for something great in this world.
And we contribute to this happening, to the extent that we sin and put aside God.
The Son of God, that is, Jesus came into the world to reward us with abundant life, full of health, progress, absolute well-being, understanding of the things of God, in short, so that we would know the truth and live under its shelter.
With his example Jesus showed us the best way to live, the priorities we must keep in mind, how to behave. It is thanks to him that we have the opportunity of a life, as our Father had dreamed of since the very creation, a life in harmony with God, and enjoying his presence eternally.
The words of Jesus are found in the book of John, when he said:
“Truly I tell you, whoever listens to my word and believes in what the one who sent me said, will have eternal life, and will not experience any condemnation. Instead, he will pass from death to life.”
the holy spirit
Through the Holy Spirit our deaf ears to spirituality are opened, and that is when we are able to listen and respond to the effective call of God, for our salvation. It is also able to make us open our eyes that refuse to see the spiritual truth, so that we are able to see the things created by God and be able to believe in his Son to attain eternal life.
Through the intermediation of the Holy Spirit it is possible for our hearts to soften, converted into an inert object, and thus be able to harbor in our hearts the truth of Jesus, which is the same as the Creator to be saved. He loves us so much that he finds ways to give us a new and pure heart, so that we rise in God.
