God’s Way Home
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6, niv
Jesus did not say that He knew the way to heaven; He said that He Himself is the only Way to get there!
During the Vietnam War, a story was reported about a paratrooper who had been air-dropped into the jungle and couldn’t find his way out. A native guide had to be sent into the jungle to find the lost man then lead him safely to his base. The guide became the man’s way to safety—his “way home.” In the same manner, Jesus is “God’s Guide,” heaven-dropped into the world to lead lost sinners safely “Home.” It stands to reason that if you refuse to acknowledge that you are “lost,” then you will not accept God’s Way home. But for those of us who know we have been lost, our overwhelming gratitude for the Guide is enough to compel us to tell others about Him—about the truth of their lost condition and the truth about the Way out.
