Jesus as the Way

I continue to think about something my dear friend told me last week. She said to remember that Jesus “is the way, the truth, and the life.” In John 14:6, the disciples are confused about the “way to go.” Jesus famously says: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Years ago, I read We Would See Jesus, and the chapter on Jesus as “the Way” changed my life. Jesus Himself—not any religious works like more prayer, more Bible reading, or more effort–is all we need. He is the way. It’s a strange thing to say. It’s like saying, “I am the path forward. I am the journey. I am also the destination.” But my friend helped me see that Jesus is the way when we don’t know what to do. We can ask Him to make a way forward when we feel stuck. He is our way. He is the way–the only way–to God. He is the way forward, the way to truth and life.
