I am the Way, the Truth and the Life
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
I enjoy stories. I also enjoy art journaling. So it’s no surprise that the Lord often explains His truths to me through the medium of film. One personal favorite is the classic “The Wizard of Oz.”
As I studied Jesus’ words, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, I saw a yellow brick road leading straight to my Heavenly Father. Like a yellow ribbon, the road is full of hope and the promise that the battle weary will find their way to their flourishing garden home.
Every time Jesus said “I am” He declared it in a present tense that transcends time. In other words, He will always be present tense. So the way doesn’t really lead to a final destination. The way IS a present person, Jesus, in the Father, full of His Spirit. Remember He Is (now, this very minute) the way… truth… life.
