John 14:6 (KJV)

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

VERY BRIEFLY WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD AND THE GUIDIANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS

I WANT TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT

(A ROAD MAP TO HEAVEN)

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

HAVE YOU EVER TOOK A TRIP AND YOU DID`NT KNOW HOW TO GET TO WHERE YOU WAS GOING

AND ALONG THE WAY TO YOUR DESTINATION YOU GOT LOST

YOU PULL OVER AND ASK SOMEBODY AND YOU FOLLOWED THERE DRIECTIONS AND YOU WIND UP GETTING LOST AGAIN

BUT FINALLY YOU BUY A ROAD MAP

AND YOU FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTION ON THE MAP AN YOU FOUND YOUR DESTINATION

AND I NEED TO PAUSE AND TELL YOU

JUST LIKE YOU CAN GET LOST PHYSICALLY

YOU CAN ALSO GET LOST SPIRITUALLY

BUT IN THE TEXT BEFORE US JESUS HELPS EACH OF US GET BACK ON THE HIGHWAY THAT LEADS TO HEAVEN

IN THE TEXT BEFORE US

JESUS HAS CONVERSATION WITH HIS DICIPLES CONCERNING HIS DEATH AND DEPARTURE

AN HE GIVES THEM COMFORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE COMING CRISIS THEY WOULD FACE

HE PLEADS WITH THEM TO HAVE THE SAME FAITH IN HIM THEY HAD IN GOD

HE WAS ASSURING THEM THAT HE WAS THERE FORERUNNER

AND THAT HIS DEPARTURE WOULD PREPARE FOR THEM AN ETERNAL DWELLING PLACE WITH THE FATHER

FOR IN VERSE 4 OF THE TEXT

Jesus said to his disciples, “And you know the way where I am going”

But DOUBTING Thomas responded to this statement by saying, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way”

Thomas raised this issue because he was not fully aware of the character of Jesus.

Despite having walked with Jesus for three years,

Thomas still did not know Jesus for who he was.

EVEN THOUGH THOMAS HAD SEEN JESUS TURN WATER INTO WINE

HE HAD SEEN JESUS HEAL THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE OF BLOOD

HE HAD SEEN JESUS TELL THE MAN AT THE POOL OF BESTHESDA TO TAKE UP HIS BED AND WALK

AND EVEN AFTER HE HAD WITINESS ALL OF JESUS MIRIACLES

HE STILL DID`NT HAVE A CLUE WHO JESUS REALLY WAS

BUT IN RESPONSE TO THOMAS QUESTION JESUS SHARE WITH THEM THE WORDS OF OUR TEXT

HE SAYS –I AM THE WAY

THE WORD WAY MEANS road or path. It is sometimes rendered “highway.” It also has reference to a course of conduct or a way of thinking.

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

BECAUSE THE 1ST ADAM FAILED US IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN

THE LAST ADAM SAVED US ON A HILL CALLED CALVARY WHEN HE GOT UP THAT 3RD DAY MORNING WITH ALL POWER IN HIS HANDS

HE GAVE US ACCESS TO GOD

AND SINCE JESUS IS THE WAY YOU CAN TRAVEL GOD`S ROAD MAP TO HEAVEN WITHOUT CHARGE

It does not matter about your position, possessions, pleasures, or powers, you can come to Jesus without charge.

The reason this is so is because we have no adequate exchange for what Jesus has to offer.

The path to God is open through Jesus Christ for all sinners, good, bad, and all that are in between.

THAT WHY THE SONG WRITER SAID

There is room at the cross for you,

Though millions have come,

There is still room for one,

There is room at the cross for you.

BUT NOT ONLY IS JESUS IS THE WAY

BUT THE TEXT ALSO REVEALS THAT HE IS THE TRUTH

THE TRUTH SPEAKS OF sincerity and integrity of the character of Jesus.
