Passage ~ “Thomas said to Him, ‘Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:5-6).
Significance ~ There is only one way to heaven.
Comment ~ All religions include the aspect of the religious person earning their way—all based on some form of DO. On the other hand, Christianity, rather than a religion is a relationship with Jesus Christ Himself—by confessing our unworthiness and accepting His finished work on the Cross on our behalf. In other words Christianity is based on what was DONE when Christ paid the penalty of our sins. The new relationship that a believer gains with the Son of God also includes an intimate relationship with the other two members of the Trinity: God the Father, and the Spirit of God.
the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
