Jesus is the Way


In John 14:1-6 we read, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” There are two lessons we want to draw out from this text.

First, Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us, if we are making the preparations to go to heaven! Folks do not go to heaven by accident, by mishap, or inadvertently. We must desire to go, for hope is necessary, Rm.8:24-25. We must make a decision to go, which takes place when we obey the gospel, Ac.2:36-41. And we must be faithful till death,Rev.2:10. Yes, heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.

Secondly, we want to note from our text that Jesus is the way to get to heaven. He is not “a way” but he is “the way.” It has been said by men that there are many ways unto to God, not so, Jesus is the way. There is only ONE way to God and to get to heaven, and that is through Christ and his church, Eph.5:32, Ac.20:28. The gospel brings us the good news of this way of salvation. Have you turned to the Lord Jesus Christ, for he is the way, the truth, and the life?
