John 14 : 6
Jesus said: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”
This is the verse which is displayed prominently on the wall above the pulpit in the church.
It can be found in John’s Gospel, the fourth book in the New Testament. Here, the Lord Jesus Christ tells us that there is only one way of salvation for all men and women everywhere. He tells us that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He declares Himself to be the only access to God for any human being. He is also saying that He is, in fact, the very physical representation of Almighty God. Boiled down to its very simplest terms, the Lord Jesus Christ here says that He is the only one who can rescue you from sin and its consequences.
You may think, at first, that this is a rather narrow view for our day and time. But it is a fact that is taught everywhere in the Bible. Some people believe that there are many routes you can take to reach God. But the Bible makes it clear that there is only one way for all men and women, and that way is through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ who died for our sins on the cross, and then, after three days, rose victoriously from the dead.
So, here the Lord Jesus Christ gives everyone a threefold assurance:
- How can you be saved? He is the Way!
- How can you be sure? He is the Truth!
- How can you be satisfied? He is the Life!
