Jesus answered,I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me(John 14:6).
Jesus made this statement to the disciples to bring to their attention something that they knew but hadn’t realized they knew. He said to them,
You know the place where I am going. And Thomas said to Him,
Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way? Jesus said that they did know. But they didn’t know that they knew.
I am the way and the truth and the life. That’s what I meant, Thomas. You know me; therefore, you know the way. For I am the way.
This unique claim of Jesus reveals the grandeur of His character and being! There is the inclusiveness of this statement–it all relates to the Father.
I am the way to the Father,He says. If you come to know Jesus, He will bring you to God. When I began my Christian life as a boy, my awareness of the one with whom I was dealing was the Lord Jesus. How I loved the hymns about the cross and work of Christ, and I loved to think about Him as the Savior. But gradually the Father has come into focus. More frequently my thoughts are drawn to the fatherhood of God, and I revel in the glory of that relationship.
