“Jesus told him,“I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really know Me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him!””
Have you ever wondered how to get to Heaven? Well, the answer is simple; through Jesus. There is no special ticket or no trick questions to answer or no religious act you have to do. Just simply, through Jesus. If you don’t believe these words, then read Jesus’ own words. He said of Himself, ‘That no one can come to the Father except through Me’. He alone is the way, the truth and the life. He is the way to Heaven, He is the truth of God in His fullness, and He is the life beyond life.
Yet Jesus’ words were so much more than just simply directing us to Heaven. Jesus, above all, wanted and wants us to know God for ourselves. He wants us to have a personal relationship with Him, with the Father and with the Holy Spirit. That is why He said, ‘When you know Me, you know who My Father is’. Jesus said this, because He wanted to emphasize that He and His Father are One. He wanted His disciples to know who the ‘Father’ was, who ‘Elohim’ was, who ‘Yahweh’ was, who the ‘God’ that they and their ancestors had been worshipping all of their lives. He wanted to show them that the God of the Torah, of the stories of old, of Moses, Abraham and Isaac, was standing right in front of them, reaching out to have a relationship with them, both in the ‘now’ and ‘eternally’ in Heaven.
We too are presented with the same challenge today. Jesus presents Himself in front of us as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He wants us to have a relationship with Him now and forever more. Is Jesus the way, truth and life for you?
