One Answer

It was the first day in her new position as the secretary to the president. As she was presented with her first task, she wanted to appear confident and competent. 

Speaking very carefully, he said to her, “These accounts that I am giving you are critical. They are the foundation of our income. I want you to go over each of them at least three times to make sure that all of the numbers in each are correct before you return them to me. Your results must be right!”  

Working anxiously for quite some time, she finally completed her task. Returning the work assigned her by the president, she proudly gave him the results of her efforts. As he took the papers from her hands, she said with confidence, “Sir, I want you to know that I exceeded your expectations. I went over each page ten times, and discovered that there are ten different answers to each column.” 

When asked the Way to heaven and eternal life, Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.” 

This statement in John’s Gospel is one of the most basic and important passages in all of Scripture. If anyone anywhere wants to know the Way to God and eternal life, this is the one and only answer. Jesus, with no hesitation, declared once and for all that He is the Way. Some may argue that this declaration and proclamation is much too narrow. But, in all reality, it is wide enough for anyone, anywhere to enter into at any time.  

Prayer:  Thank You, Heavenly Father, for sending Your One and only Son into the world to become, if we choose, Our Savior. “He” is the Way to eternal life with You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

Scripture For Today: Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. John 14:6
