All praise, glory, and honor to Christ Jesus the living Son of God who said –
”I am the way,
and the life;
no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.”
The apostle John wrote in 1 John 1:2 –
“(For the life was manifested,
and we have seen it,
and bear witness,
and shew unto you that eternal life,
which was with the Father,
and was manifested unto us.)”
Our Father God, you have shown us who you are through your Son, Jesus Christ. He came and he showed us your glory and goodness. He has given us life – eternal life.
- “For the Father judgeth no man,
- but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
- That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.
- He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.” John 5:22,23
Help us who have heard your word and received it into our hearts bear witness to the lost and dying of the Life. May we show them the Way to Life. May we speak the Truth concerning the Life. May we reflect the Life in us.
And to borrow from David Guzik in his commentary on John 14:6 remember when –
“I don’t know where I’m going, Jesus is the way;
When I am confused and don’t know what to think, Jesus is the truth;
When I am dead inside and don’t know if I can go on, Jesus is the life.”
Jesus gives us this promise:
“Verily, Verily, I say unto you,
He that heareth my word,
and believeth on him that sent me,
hath everlasting life,
and shall not come into condemnation;
but is passed from death unto life.”
May we today, and always honor Jesus Christ, the way, the truth, and the life, who has loved us and suffered our death, to give us life now and for all eternity. He has made it possible for us to know him, the great “I Am”.
Praising the Great I Am:
“O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together …
Whom have I in heaven but thee?
And there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee …
For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light …
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof:
for thou was slain, and hast redeemed us to God
by thy blood
out of every kindred and tongue, and people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests:
and we shall reign on the earth …
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power, and riches, and wisdom,
and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing …
Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power,
be unto him that sitteth on the throne,
and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
And the four beasts said, Amen.
And the four and twenty elders
fell down and worshipped him
that liveth for ever and ever.”
Psalm 34:3; 73:25; 36:9; From Revelation 5:9-14
Jesus is the way – follow him.
Jesus is the truth – believe him.
Jesus is the life – receive him.
May we forever praise his name.
Jesus is the way – there is no other.
Jesus is the truth – hear him.
Jesus is the life – his victory over death is mine.
May we praise his name forever.
