I Am the Way …
by Andrew Lewis
‘Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ John 14:6
Jesus said I am the way.
In fact this was a cornerstone of Jesus’ teaching, that there was a new WAY of living life, there was a new way of experiencing God and it came through Jesus Christ.
This is why the word repentance is so important when it comes to our faith. Repentance always comes across as a negative word but when we understand the meaning it’s actually positive and encouraging.
Repentance means to change ones mind, it’s the understanding that you were taking a certain way or path BUT now you are going to change your direction and start the path of the NEW WAY; and in this particular circumstance the way of Jesus.
Jesus claimed that there is a NEW WAY TO EXPERIENCE GOD
NEW WAY TO LOVE.
NEW WAY TO HOPE.
NEW WAY TO HAVE PEACE.
NEW WAY TO FORGIVE.
NEW WAY TO WORSHIP.
NEW WAY TO SERVE.
NEW WAY TO SHOW MERCY.
NEW WAY OF JUSTICE.
TODAY … ask yourself, have I experienced this NEW WAY?
Lord, we are challenged by your claims of being the way. Help us to experience this NEW WAY of doing life. May we have the courage to walk that path. Amen.
