I Am The Way

And whither 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.

John 14:4-6

Verse 6 is one of the most famous verses in the Bible: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”  It gives us the supremacy of Jesus in one concise statement.  It has shown every generation from that one to the current one how to be saved.  It shows us the way to God and to Heaven.

Thomas asked the question in verse 5, “…how can we know the way?”  And Jesus told him.

“I am the way.”  If we ever get lost and need to find our way, “I am the way.”  If we ever find ourselves searching, “I am the way.”  If someone wants to know the way to God, “I am the way.”  If anyone would go to Heaven, “I am the way.”

“I am… the truth.”  Jesus is the truth.  He has the truth.  In a world of error, lies, deceit, and false hope, Jesus shines forth as the truth.

I am… the life.”  Jesus is Life and the giver of life to those that believe in Him.  We are surrounded by a lost and dying world.  But we know the true Life.  In Him is life.  If any person is searching for life, He has it and He gives it “more abundantly.”

“I am the way, the truth, and the life.”  Jesus is the answer to our questions.  He is the way.  He is the truth.  And He is the life.  The more our lives reflect Him, the better they will be.

  1. Amen! We used to sing a song in church that said ” He is my everything. He is my all.” As long as we keep Jesus at the center we are victorious.
