I am the way, the truth and the life

“I am the way, the truth and the life.” John 14:6

Jesus told His disciples that He was leaving. They were confused and distressed because they wanted to go with Him. But Jesus had to go. It was only by dying on the cross, rising again and ascending to heaven that He could become ‘the way’.

His life was sacrificed so that we could be saved; His perfect obedience became ours and our sin became His; we have new life because He rose victorious over the grave. He has gone before us and will welcome us to heaven one day!
