The Way, Truth and Life
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (KJV)
I am the way, and the truth, and the life. This is said in reply to Thomas. Without him there would be no Way revealed; no divine and saving truth, no immortal life.
He is the Truth! This fulfills all the prophecies of a Saviour. His is the way that sinners come by believing.
He is the Life, by whose life-giving Spirit the dead in sin are quickened. Nor can any man draw nigh God as a Father, who is not quickened by Him as the Life, and taught by Him as the Truth, to come by Him as the Way.
By Christ, as the Way, our prayers go to God, and his blessings come to us; this is the Way that leads to rest, the good old Way.
THE ZIG ZAG PATH
We climbed the height by the zigzag path
and wondered why, until
We understood it was made zigzag
To break the force of the hill.
A road straight up would be too steep
For the traveler's feet to tread.
The thought was kind in it’s wise design
Of a zigzag path instead.
It is often so in our daily life--
We fail to understand
That the twisting way our feet must tread
By love alone was planned.
Then murmur not at the winding way.
It is our Father's will
To lead us home by the zigzag path
To break the force of the hill
...there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (I Timothy 2:5-6)
Look to Jesus now and He will lead you down the right path!
...Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved... (Acts 16:31)
