[3] The way

Verse
John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Message
The big question everyone or some people are asking is, \”Why is He (Jesus) the only way?\” or \”Why isn\’t so-and-so the way?\” They want to know why there aren\’t many ways to God and what makes Jesus so special; and there is one simple answer: SIN.


If whoever we think is the way to the Father or some paradise or heaven, can take away our sins; If who or whatever it is can make us new people, and can give us the power to stop doing the things we do not want to do, then we can all take who or whatever it is to be the way. 


As long as you are still struggling or battling with past sins and sin itself or himself, then you either haven\’t found the way or you have been deceived into going back to your old ways. He is the way, the only way to God. He is righteous and He gives us His righteousness when we accept His offer of salvation. 

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: (Romans 3:21-22)



Our righteousness comes from Jesus; His righteousness, God\’s righteousness makes it possible for us to come near to Him. God is Holy and righteous, and if we want to go to Him, we must be likewise. Jesus is the only one who can make a person holy and righteous before God, thus making Him the only way to the Father.

Verse
John 8:12
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.


Message
Jesus is the light of the world. The world is in darkness and he directs us through the darkness to the Father of all lights(God). We can only be the light (imitates of Christ)  if we have Him in us. Our light can only shine if we have found the way. If you are living in darkness or walking by the flesh, then you have lost track and need to find the light. The light that would guide you out of all the wickedness the devil has placed around us. He is and will always be the way. Praise God for salvation; Praise God, for He loves us and gave us a way. He gave us His own Son. He, God came to show us the way to Himself. Hallelujah

7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:7-10)



Amen
