Reflection on John 14:1-14

Follow Me

Scripture

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”

Observation

This is at the Last Supper.

Jesus reassures His disciples. There is enough room in the Father’s house and Jesus is going to prepare their place.

Thomas says, “We don’t know where you are going or how to get there.”

Jesus replies, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”

Philip asks Jesus to show them the Father. Jesus tells him that He and the Father are one- to see Jesus is to see the Father.

Application

There is only one way to the Father and that is Jesus. Our culture wants to believe that all religions are equivalent and lead to the same destination. Jesus says, He is the only way.

There is no compromise here. If you want a place in heaven, Jesus is the only way to get there.

Muslims without Jesus will not see heaven.

Hindus without Jesus will not see heaven.

Buddhists without Jesus will not see heaven.

Atheists without Jesus will not see heaven.

My neighbour without Jesus will not see heaven.

We must pray and share our faith to see people saved. Jesus is their only hope.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, thank you for saving me. I pray that those people close to me who do not know you will come to salvation in Jesus’ name. Amen.
