Message of the Day: Jesus is the Truth and Our Only Access to the Only God!
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6, NKJV)
The disciples by now surely knew that Jesus was soon to die. He therefore comforted them by saying he was going to his Father to prepare a permanent dwelling place for them, and one day he would return to take them to be with him forever. He had told them often enough that if they followed him as loyal followers, they would share in his final victory.
We will have access to God only by obeying the instructions, imitating the example, and depending on the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was the leader in the road, the guide to the wandering, the teacher of the ignorant, and example to us all.
Jesus is the source of truth, or he who originates and communicates truth for our salvation. Truth is a representation of things as they are. His life, purity, and teachings were the most complete and perfect representation of the things of the eternal world that has been or can be presented to man. He is the truth! He is the fountain of all truth, and by him all truth is communicated to us.
None of us can have access to the Father except by the merits of Jesus Christ. God has appointed him as the Mediator, and has ordained that all blessings shall descend to this world through him. He is the only way to the only God!
