There is no other way.
Today’s Scripture: John 14:6
In secondary school, there was a topic in Mathematics called “Change of Subject”. Everyone who knew me knew how much I disliked this particular topic. When we discussed other topics in class, I attended classes with excitement, but this particular one had its own way of throwing me off balance. One of the reasons was because it had a strict method (or so I thought), and without following the particular formula, one would always end up with the wrong answer.
In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the Way”. When we try to do things or make things happen outside of Him, we end up struggling and therefore frustrated. When you are travelling, do you notice that there is usually “the way” to get to where you are going? If you take the wrong route, you would end up at an entirely different destination. It is the same way with God. God is the Way to our rest and our peace, and when we try to seek other ways and other sources, we become even more miserable.
If only I could understand the way that Math topic was done, then life would have been easier at the time. Hence let us not search for truth and freedom in the wrong places. Always remember that the Bible says Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Prayer Point: Thank you Jesus for being the Way and for making the Way known to me. Help me not to search for rest, truth or freedom in the wrong places. Help me to experience fullness of life in You and grant me the grace and zeal to pray for those who don’t know you as the Way, so that they can find life and truth in You, in Jesus name.
