He Is the Truth

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

Truth is rooted in the eternal God who is all powerful and unchangeable. Jesus Christ is the truth. He is the source of all truth. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to walk in the truth. Therefore, learning about Jesus and His words should be our top priority. The witness of His work and His words is preserved in the four gospels.

He Is the Life

Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.’ (John 11:25)

Jesus is the Lord of life. What does it mean to us that Jesus is the resurrection and the life? On the day before His crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples, “Because I live, you will live also” (John 14:19). After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to His believers several times.

This gives us hope for our own resurrection and eternal life.

Cultivation Is Worth Dying For

Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days. (Daniel 6:10)

What was the first thing that Daniel did when heard the decree of King Darius ordering the death of any who petitions any god or man other than the king himself? He went home and prayed to God, thus disobeying the king’s decree. The Bible notes that he did this “as was his custom since early days”, indicating that this was not something new for Daniel to do. In fact, these thrice-daily prayers were his usual spiritual cultivation. And these prayers were so important to Daniel that he deemed them worth defying the king for, so important that they were worth dying for.
