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)
From the time a person believes in Jesus Christ, he embarks on a journey of faith. For the rest of his life, he lives with the hope that when his life comes to the end, he will enter heaven to be with God forever. In our life journey, while we walk the pilgrim pathway, we definitely want to think of returning to our heavenly home. We all know what the way is for returning to our heavenly home as Jesus said it very clearly in the Bible. The way to heaven is through Jesus Christ Himself. How do we walk on the way of Jesus?
Knowing Jesus is the way involves believing in His words. To walk on the way means to believe in Him and to keep His commandments. Jesus is the foundation of truth. Walking in truth means living according to the commandments. If we love Jesus, everything He commands us should be close to our hearts. That is the attitude we should have in carrying out His words.
The Holy Spirit is our helper. The Holy Spirit helps us in our walk of faith by teaching us, reminding us of Jesus’ words, interceding for us, sanctifying us, and enabling us to live a new life. The fruit of the Holy Spirit refers to the godly attributes of those who walk in the Spirit (Gal 5:16). The manifestation of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life is that the believer becomes increasingly more like Christ both in character and in actions.
Jesus is the only way to heaven. There is no other way to the Father. As Christians, we walk by faith, not by sight. We may not know what lies ahead of us, but we can be sure that the Lord Jesus Christ will guide us and give us the strength to walk through it all. He leads us onto the right path, corrects our ways, delivers and strengthens us, comforts us, and lifts our burdens. We must place our trust in Jesus.
We never know where we will be led, but with faith, we love and believe in the One who is leading. It is a life of faith in God that will ultimately lead us to our heavenly home–a glorious mansion in the city above that Jesus is preparing for us (Jn 14:2-3).
