Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life !

(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.” Ever since the time of Christ, many people have accepted the lie that there are many roads to heaven, when in the above verse Jesus says  very clearly that this is not true. Either Jesus was a liar, or he as God in the flesh was telling us the truth. 1) He is the Way. In John 1:1-4, Jesus told us that he was the Word of God in human form, and not only was he the Word of God, but also the Creator of the world and that in him was “life.” God came personally into the world that he created to show us that salvation can only come through his Son Jesus, and no other. Yes, there are many other ways in life to follow, but only Jesus came back from the dead to prove to mankind that he was and is God’s only Son, and the only way into heaven. 2) He is the Truth. Not only did Jesus say that he was the truth, but that his Word is absolutely true, also. In this world there are a lot of opinions and theories about truth, but only one has God’s stamp of approval. For the Bible says that God “cannot lie,” and if Jesus is God than everything that he has said in the Bible is absolutely true. So, if what he says is true, why do so many people not believe Him?  Simply, because they choose not to. According to God there is only one way, and one truth and his name is Jesus. 3) He is also the Life. In Jesus Christ life is better than before. Once someone is saved, God forgives and forgets their past. Our old sinful ways have been washed away in the blood of Jesus, and Jesus’s new ways are now a part of our new life. For we not only have eternal life later, but also a more blessed life now as we pattern the life of Christ.

The Strengthening Purpose of Time

( Gen 41:41-43) “And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt... A nd he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.” When Joseph was introduced to us in chp.37, he was a young inexperienced 17 year old boy, and yet 13 years later God raised him up  to rule the nation of Egypt. So, what made him different ? The Answer : “ Time,” and his faith in God ! You see time is a wonderful teacher; 1) Time strengthens endurance . Endurance and faith can only be strengthened over time. Like exercise, we start out not able to do much but over time we find that we can do more. You see, God allows us to go through the ups and downs of life, to help us gain not only spiritual maturity, but also spiritual abilities. Spiritual endurance therefore enables us to handle life’s trials better. 2) Time strengthens patience . Although Joseph, consistently did right, God allowe

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

(Matt 6:11) “Give us this day our daily bread.” God desires that we communicate with Him about everything on a regular basis. Why, because He wants us to know that He is listening and that He has the power to answer our prayers at any time. In the Lord’s teachings on prayer in (Matt. 7), Jesus instructed his disciples to simply ask, and then to keep asking. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” In other words, ask God, and if you see nothing keep knocking on heaven’s door until He responds or shows you differently. Therefore, prayer is simply thanking God for the needs that he has promised to provide, but also asking Him for things that we cannot change. The above part of the Lord’s prayer is an expectation of thanksgiving for doing so. Jesus told us in (Matt. 6:33) not to worry about all our basic needs such as food, clothing, housing, and the like, for if we will just simply seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness,

Glory To Jesus In The Highest

(Luke 2:13-14) “ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest , and on earth peace, good will toward men.”  Again, we read above about the great proclamation of Heaven’s Angels the night of Jesus’ birth, and how they began to sing “Glory to God in the highest.” So, what did the angels mean by this statement . 48 times in the Bible God uses the phrase, “The Most High,” to describe not just the dwelling place of God, but also the Glory that should be ascribed to Him and His Son Jesus 1) Jesus was the Glory that came down from the Highest Heaven . Jesus’s existence did not begin at birth, for the Bible tells us that he was, and is, and always will be the eternal Son of God , “the only begotten of the Father.”   For He is, (Rev. 1:8) “the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and ending,” (18) “he that liveth, and was dead”; and the one who is “alive for evermore,” 2) His Glory filled the whole earth at his birth .
