“Jesus said to him, “I am the (only) Way (to God) and the (real) Truth and the (real) Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6
As we have reflected this week on the death of our Savior, we know that this was a part of God’s perfect plan for the life of His beloved Son.
We know that as Jesus walked this earth, He lived in total submission to the Father’s commands.
We know that Jesus walked with a heart of compassion.
He set free those who were in bondage.
He taught His disciples and all who had an ear to listen.
He had all power in His hands yet He walked with humility.
He sat with those whom others looked down upon.
Our Savior was born to die and He knew it.
There’s no greater love than this.
There has never been nor will there ever be.
Beloved, He is the way, the truth and the life.
There is no other way to have eternal life than through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
There is no other truth that we can hold on to.
There is no life without Him.
My prayer is that we don’t just reflect on these truths once a year, yet we hold on to them day by day, moment by moment.
How deep the Father’s love for us, How vast beyond all measure, That He should give His only Son To make a wretch His treasure. How great the pain of searing loss –The Father turns His face away, As wounds which mar the Chosen One Bring many sons to glory. Behold the man upon a cross, My sin upon His shoulders; Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice Call out among the scoffers. It was my sin that held Him there Until it was accomplished; His dying breath has brought me life – I know that it is finished. I will not boast in anything, No gifts, no power, no wisdom; But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection. Why should I gain from His reward? I cannot give an answer; But this I know with all my heart – His wounds have paid my ransom.
