Jesus, The Way

Do things like unemployment, discrimination, rising crime, and an uncaring society make life seem hopeless? Do the relationships you have with family members and friends bring deep satisfaction? Are there things from your past that you would like to forget but they still nag at your conscience?


Jesus, who lived almost 2000 years ago among people who faced similar problems, made the extraordinary claim that only He could provide a solution to mankind’s greatest problems. He said:


"Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me" (John 14:6 NASB).


Jesus promised that those who followed Him would:


"…receive many times as much at this time and in the age to come, eternal life" (Luke 18:30 NASB).


You owe it to yourself to take a good look at Jesus. How?


Finding Jesus, The Way

The life and teaching of Jesus are found in the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The letters of the New Testament are also the teaching of Jesus, for He revealed it by the Holy Spirit through men like Peter and Paul. Paul wrote:


"If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord's commandment" (1 Corinthians 14:37 NASB).


It is essential, therefore, in finding Jesus as the way, that each of us make a careful study of the Bible and a determined effort to live as it directs.


Jesus, The Way To A Better Life

Jesus stated His purpose in coming to earth in the following words:


"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly" (John 10:10 NASB).


Jesus provides this better life by offering the solution to the problems that make life difficult: guilt, self-pity, and fear. Jesus does not promise wealth or luxury, but He does assure us of a loving Father in heaven who cares for His children and will provide the things they truly need.


"Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you" (Matthew 6:31-33 NASB).


The happiest people in the world are those who have completely committed themselves to following Jesus. 


"And though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory" (1 Peter 1:8 NASB).


Jesus, The Way To Forgiveness Of Sins

Sin is a more serious threat to our well being than any physical, economic or social danger that we face. Yet, all of us are guilty of sin and we are helpless on our own to remove its stain. Sin is a violation of God’s law and only God can forgive sin. God has made provision for our forgiveness through Jesus.


After His sacrifice for us, Jesus explained how those who are lost in sin can have remission of sins and be saved.


"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace" (Ephesians 1:7 NASB).


"Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem" (Luke 24:46-47 NASB).


"He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned" (Mark 16:16 NASB).


Jesus, The Way To God

People who are lost need more than forgiveness of sins. They need to be restored to that close union with God that they lost by their sin. In sending Jesus into the world…


Jesus stated that a person can only reach God through Him. Jesus said:


"God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation" (2 Corinthians 5:19 NASB).


"Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me" (John 14:6 NASB).


Jesus, The Way Out Of Religious Confusion

Many who wish to follow Christ are put off by the multitude of churches and the conflicting doctrines taught by those who profess to be Christians. One does not have to be a part of this confusion. Jesus did not approve of it. Jesus promised:


"I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it" (Matthew 16:18 NASB).


We read of the beginning of His church in Acts, chapter two.


"Praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to the church each day those who were being saved" (Acts 2:47 NASB).


The Lord is still adding those who are being saved to His church. If we are saved, we are in His church and united with all others who are in Christ’s church.


"There is one body [or church] and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all" (Ephesians 4:4-6 NASB).


It is good for us to worship and work with other saved individuals who are bound with us in Christ by these unifying ties. But if we join another body (denomination), accept another lord (religious authority), or adhere to another faith (creed), we are leaving the unity for which Jesus prayed in John 17:20-21.


Jesus, The Way To Heaven 


"And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment" (Hebrews 9:27 NASB).


Death is the door, both to eternal life and death. To die in Jesus is to die in the way to heaven.


"And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, Write, 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!' Yes, says the Spirit, so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them" (Revelation 14:13 NASB).


"Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city" (Revelation 22:14 NASB).


The Bible is the only dependable source of information about Jesus. It is essential, therefore, that each of us make his own study of the original source of truth concerning Jesus.
