Wednesday Wisdom

So I have learned so much in the past few days. Reading has such a big impact on my life. Today I want to look at a verse that most of you out there know. But look at it from a perspective that you might not have done before.

John 14:6

Jesus answered “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Now most of us have seen this verse and usually teach it in this way. There is no way to the Father except through Jesus Christ. There is no way to get into heaven except through the life of Christ. He is the only way that we gain acceptance by the Father except through Jesus.

But let’s look at a different part. “I am the truth” See we often read the Bible searching for the truth of God’s words. But Jesus said I am the truth.

Maybe some of you ask yourselves what really is truth. In this age of relativism it is important to talk about truth and where we stand. The reality is that Jesus is truth. Does this demean the Bible in some way? No reflect back on the first chapter of John. But regardless everything that we believe in or that we consider truth is summed up in the person of Christ.

He is the truth. When we want to know how to believe or how to deal with something or how to minister look at Christ period. The reality is that until I really looked at Christ being “The Truth” did I ever engage in studying how he really did things.

He spoke to crowds regardless of their standing in society.

He trained and chilled with those closest to him.

He found the least of those (me) and He spent time with them meeting there needs first and then speaking Himself aka Truth into their lives.

He respected people and didn’t demand anything from them.

He wanted the best for everyone.

He committed Himself to purity

He relied on the power of the Father to transform lives instead of His own deity.

So tell me what does this mean for you?

  1. Great post.

    I just read through the book of Hebrews and a verse comes to mind:
    “He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature” -Hebrews 1:3

    What a mindblowing concept! Not only is Jesus “the Truth” but looking at His life shows us God the Father’s character as well as the character of the Holy Spirit!

    Keep em comin man.
    In Christ,
    Josh
