Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
What is truth? This is perhaps the most commonly asked question of all-time, even having its own dedicated field of study (philosophy) committed to determining the answer. Living in the highly civilized Information Age, we have an overabundance of information on the topic but the quest for truth seems to be more difficult than ever—buried under countless resources and widely differing viewpoints. Our world today is so divided on the truth that we are often told that there isn’t just one definitive truth but that everyone has "their own truth" depending on what they think or feel. Not surprisingly, many are unsatisfied with this answer, longing for something of value beyond ourselves to trust and believe in. While many people over history have claimed to have the answers to life’s greatest questions, only one of them has lived up to all His claims and whose words have stood the test of time—His name is Jesus.
Jesus answered, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
When Jesus made this bold statement over 2,000 years ago, He wasn’t just stating that He knew the truth but that he is the truth. In doing so, He claimed that truth wasn’t merely a set of principles to follow but a relationship with Him—the Son of the living God and the only way to eternal life in Heaven. The sheer controversy of Jesus’ words got him killed. The Pharisees, who were strict observers of the Jewish Law couldn’t fathom the idea of God walking among us on earth, much less becoming a humble servant to humanity. Despite Jesus’ advanced understanding of the Jewish Law and the extraordinary miracles He performed to so many, they were convinced that Jesus was a blasphemous false prophet that needed to be silenced...but He couldn't be. Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension into Heaven was confirmed by hundreds of eyewitnesses, including the apostles who recorded these events in the New Testament books of the Bible and boldly defended Jesus even onto great persecution and terrible deaths. Today, we can still see the impact that Jesus' words had on shaping the entire world and how they continue to radically transform the lives of believers.
As Christians, we are called to unashamedly proclaim the truth that Jesus is Lord, stand firm in His Word, testify about His great works in our lives and pray for those who are looking for truth in all the wrong places. Are you someone who is searching for answers right now? Since truth by definition is rooted in facts and vindicated by evidence, I encourage you to examine the validity of Jesus’ statement in the same way a judge comes to determine the truth—by speaking to witnesses (Christians) and critically reviewing the evidence (the Bible). Rest assured, God promises that those who earnestly seek Him, will find truth through His Son, Jesus.
