Jesus, The Only Way to The Father: Gospel Today Devotional - 21st September, 2022

Our Lord Jesus in the 14th chapter of the gospel according to John, made a statement that the disciples knew where he was going, and the way as well. Surprised by this, Thomas one of the twelve replied, Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? (vs 5).

Jesus, The Only Way to The Father: Gospel Today Devotional - 21st September, 2022

Jesus responded in the most reassuring way possible. It is the statement of our Lord Jesus in response to the question asked by Thomas that would serve as the focus for today's devotional. It is seen in the verse of scripture below,

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me".(John 14:6).

Jesus in responding to Thomas, said he was the way, the truth, and the life, and that no man could come to the Father except by him. Little wonder he said they knew the way because he was the way, and just like he said to Thomas then, he is saying to us again, that he is the way, the truth, and the life.

Jesus is the only way; through him men are saved, the one in whom we have been given access by faith into the presence of the Father, the one through whom we were reconciled to him and adopted into the beloved, and through whom we became partakers of the divine nature.

Jesus is the only way to the Father, and anyone who would come to the Father must come through him. This I believe is that which the Lord seeks to communicate to us today.

A charge to all who are still living outside the Lord Jesus, the invitation comes to you today, to come through the one who alone can give access to the Father, and you will find rest for your souls.

And to those who have come through him to the Father, bless God, for Jesus says we already know the way. Yes, we know him, and as a result should forever stay with the one who is indeed the way. The Lord help us all. Amen.

Daily Nugget: There's just one way to God, and that is his Son, Jesus. Do you know the way?

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your Son Jesus. Now I know that there's no other way to you except through your Son, Jesus. Help me to be able to communicate this truth to all who I come across in Jesus' name. Amen.
