His Way or Your Way? 
This devotional was written by Jim Burns

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."John 14:6

He is the Way. Follow Him through the Land of Unlikeness; You will see rare beasts, and have unique adventures.

He is the Truth. See Him in the Kingdom of Anxiety; You will come to a great city that has expected your return for years.

He is Life. Love Him in the World of the Flesh; And at your marriage all of its occasions shall dance for joy.*

When we read the words of Jesus, "I am the way, the truth, and the life," sometimes we forget that He has become our substance of life. When you follow and accept His way, truth, and life, He will bring you to places and experiences beyond the normal human life. When your life is in His hands, following His call, you are on the greatest adventure that life has to offer. Nobody said it will be easy, but you can't deny that His calling in your life is the right one. Go for it - and keep your eyes fixed on Jesus so you don't lose your way!

GOING DEEPER: 

  1. In the Bible passage John 14:6, what three ways does Jesus describe Himself? Underline the word "the" every time it occurs in the verse. Why is this little word so important?
  2. What will it take for you to follow His way, obey His truth and live His life?
