Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 (NIV)
You are my direction in life, of that I am sure. How am I your direction in life? You are the way. You are my way through life. You guide me through life. You not only point me in the right direction, you lead me through life. For that I am very thankful. What make you most thankful? Without you I would be lost and without hope both now in this life and forever in the next life. You are my way of salvation. You are my way of forgiveness and cleansing. You are the way to my living in an intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father. You made the way so that your Holy Spirit could come to live and dwell in me. Yes, I have done all these things for you. Yes, I am all these things to you.
How else am I your direction in life? You are the truth. You know the truth. You speak the truth. You are the embodiment of truth. Without you, my heart and mind would fall victim to all the thoughts and opinions and values of the world. My heart and mind and life would be molded and shaped by the patterns and practices of the world. You make the truth known to me. You use the truth to change my heart and transform my mind. It is hearing and knowing and obeying your truth that sets me free. Yes, I have done all these things for you. Yes, I am all these things to you.
How else am I your direction in life? You are the life. You revive my live. You refresh my life. You renew my life. In every way you give me fullness of life. Without, you I would be stumbling around in darkness. I would be wandering around from one fruitless pursuit after another. You give my life purpose and meaning and hope. You give my life meaning and direction. You guide me to where you want me to go. You give me what you want me to do. It is you that makes me able to live a fruitful life. Without you, I would be unable to bear fruit for your kingdom or bring glory to your name. Without you, I would not be able to be a witness in the world for you. But your life lives in me. Your life living in me draws others to you. One day, I will come to live forever in heaven because of the new life I have you. One day, there will be a bountiful harvest for your kingdom and a full and rich gathering in heaven of a multitude of your followers because of the life you have given to us all. You are, life itself and also the giver of life. Yes, I am. I am all these things to you and to all who follow me. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, you are the way, the truth and the life. Without you, I would not know the way to go. Without you, I would not know what to think. Without you, I would not know how to live. You have been my guide. Lead me. I will follow you in all I think, say and do. Amen
