OUR LIFE SOURCE

Power Source

Jesus told him, “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE.  No one comes to the Father except through Me”  (John 14: 6)

Jesus is the WAY:  There is a way that seems right to a man; but its way leads to death (Proverbs 14: 6).  Many of us believe that we know everything there is to know about where we are in our life and where we are headed.  Societal norms convince us that we are the captain of our soul.  However, our “own way” often leads us in the opposite direction from God’s plans for us and when we take our own route, we are often heading along the road of death.  I am reminded of the prodigal son in Luke 15: 11-32 who demanded to go his own way and it wasn’t too long before he realized he was on a road that would have surely led him to death.  We must ensure that we check with Jesus BEFORE we do anything. He has given us His roadmap within His Word (the Bible) and before we take off helter skelter we need to study and prepare for the journey.

Jesus is the TRUTH:  The entirety of  God’s word is Truth, and all His righteous judgments endure forever (Psalm 119: 160).  Jesus told us that if we would continue (study) to be in His Word, we would prove that we were His disciples.  It is as we study and seek the Lord with all of our heart, soul, and mind that He will reveal hidden (secret) things to us…it is called ‘revelation’ and through our time alone with Jesus, we really come to KNOW HIM PERSONALLY.  It is like the relationship you may have with your closest friend; you share the hidden things in your heart with them, because you trust them and love them and know they will give you counsel and unconditional love in return.  Jesus goes on to tell us that we WILL know the TRUTH (Him) and that the TRUTH (Jesus) WILL set us free (John 8: 31, 32).  It reminds me of what Jesus spoke just as He began His ministry here… “…The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He has anointed Me…to preach, to proclaim freedom, to heal, and to ‘set the oppressed FREE… to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4: 18-19).

Jesus is LIFE:  In the very beginning was the Word (Jesus) and the Word was with God and the Word WAS God…all things were created through the Word (Genesis 1, 2).  LIFE was in Him (Jesus), and that life was the light of men.  Psalm 119: 105 tells us that His Word (Jesus) is a lamp for my feet and a light on my daily journey.  Jesus said that He IS the light of the world and that all who follow Him will NOT walk in darkness, but will have the light (revelation) that brings LIFE  (John 8: 12).   John 3: 15 tells us that everyone who BELIEVES in Him (Jesus) will have eternal LIFE  (see Romans 10: 8-13) and in  John 10: 10 Jesus  assures us that He came that we may have LIFE (Him) and have it in abundance!  Wow…that is so awesome and I want to encourage all of you reading who have NOT yet experienced the JOY and PEACE of Jesus reigning in your life…do it NOW; it is the ONE decision that you will NEVER regret!  🙂

Jesus told Martha (and each of us);  “I AM the Resurrection and the LIFE.  The one who believes in Me, even if he dies, WILL LIVE.  Everyone who lives and believes in Me will NEVER DIE—ever.  Do you believe this?”  (John 11: 25, 26)
