Names of Jesus Day 29: Truth

The most quoted verse from this passage is verse 6, but as I took a closer look at the verses before and after it, I realized the message was even more powerful.

“’Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.’

Thomas said to him, ‘Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’

Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.’” – John 14:1-7

Jesus describes heaven to his disciples. Very few passages in Scripture do this. Jesus then provides an opening for the conversation to make a powerful connection.

Thomas asks a valid question. I think it’s a question I would ask as well. I’m the one who gets directions for a project and still says, “But, I don’t understand.”

Jesus is all of these things?

The Way – The path to God
The path to God is the road to Calvary.

The Truth – He and his message are what we are to believe
The message is of God’s unconditional love and promise of a Savior to die for our sins.

The life -We get to spend eternal life with Him.
Eternal life is what we receive when this earthly life ends because we have believe in the way and the truth.

In a world where truth is becoming more relative, we just need to look to Jesus and we’ve got all the truth we need.
