“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’.” - John 4:16
Jesus, being one with the Father, made a declaration to His disciples (and us) that the way, and the only way, to eternal life is to follow Him. We know that Jesus is the Word made flesh. All scripture is God breathed, and is perfect truth. Therefore, when we follow Him and believe in his words, we are pursuing God’s absolute truth.
Through believing in Him and modelling our lives on His, we receive the gift of eternal life. Jesus’ death opened a way for us to approach the throne of our Heavenly Father through prayer; we can surrender our sin and weakness to God so He in turn is able to transform us through the Holy Spirit, into the people of righteousness that He created us to be.
Jesus, thank you for the sacrifice You made to pay for my sins, past, present and future. Jesus I pray that I model my life on your way and the teachings contained within your Word. As I follow your way in my life, I look forward to eternity in your Kingdom. Amen.
How can we live this out today?
We can surrender our sins to God to allow him to transform us into the people He created us for. We can undertake daily prayer, listening to Him and being obedient to His will. Spending time in the Word will ensure we stay on the path of righteousness all the way to eternal life.
