John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Just the other day my son saw a tshirt that said, “Baseball is Life. All the rest is details.” Being a ball player himself, he liked the shirt. After a few minutes, the words of Jesus came to mind where He said that He is the life. My son agreed.
While I enjoy the pastimes afforded in our present time, I cannot get away from this essential teaching of the Master. He is the way, the truth, and the life. When we try to escape this fact, we run into trouble. Like food, water, and air, Jesus is basic to our existence. In fact, the Scriptures say clearly, “And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:17).
One thing we Christians are guilty of is often not taking the Savior literally enough. When he told the disciples that He was the way, the truthe, and the life, He was not simply speaking spiritually. We need Him daily to sustain our mere existence!
Praise the Lord today for making you and keeping you alive for His divine pleasure and glory. What a privilege!
