Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

What kind of life do you want to live? This is a common question among us. There are many books written on how to find what do you want in life. Soft skills trainers too touch on this subject and one of the goals of soft skills training is achieve the fullness of your potential. All of this looks good and most of us want to get into this. I am not against it. But I want to say that here the definition of life is defined by us human beings. This kind of definition of life originates from the idea that we are the author of human life. God is the author of human life and he has a purpose in creating us. However, we corrupted it by our sins. In Jesus, God restores this life back. Jesus says, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

How do you get this abundant life? Jesus says, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” The definite article in front of “way, truth, and life” indicates that Jesus is unique and He is the only one and only way forward. To receive this abundant life, he is the Way. He is not showing the way but he is the Way who leads you to the Truth. Truth is not an idea or a thing or a concept. Jesus is the Truth. He is the embodiment and fulfillment of the Word of God. Coming to the Truth we find abundant life. Through Him and in Him and with Him we have everything. This abundant life is filled with God’s grace where you experience fullness of joy and strength. May the dear Lord help us to abide with his Son, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life! God bless!
