THE WAY



 

On the night Jesus was betrayed, He comforted His fear-filled disciples with these memorable words: “ ‘Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also. You know the way to where I am going.’ ‘Lord,’ Thomas said, ‘we don’t know where you’re going. How can we know the way?’ Jesus told him, ‘I am the way…’ ” (John 14:1–6).

 

“You know the Way…”

“How can we know the Way?”

“I am the Way…”

 

Jesus is the way to salvation and security. He’s the way to peace and joy. He’s the way to Heaven. He’s the only way.

 

It’s appropriate that His church became known as “the Way.” When Saul of Tarsus was dispatched to Damascus, he was given authority to persecute and arrest any “men or women who belonged to the Way” (Acts 9:2). Later, when Paul gave testimony of his personal salvation, he told of persecuting “the Way” (Acts 22:4; 24:14, 22). In Ephesus, the church was referred to as “the Way” (Acts 19:9, 23).

 

Jesus died to pave “the Way” into an intimate and eternal relationship with the Father. Jesus is “the Way.”  Do you know “the Way”?

  

“… think on these things” (Philippians 4:8, KJV).
