"Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth"...
2 Tim 2:15
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me"...John 14:6
In his classic book The Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan told of the adventures of Christian in his spiritual journey as a believer in Christ. Christian knew that the straight and narrow path, the way to Jesus, was
the only road to heaven, the Celestial City. But the path was often rough and rocky; trials and temptations surrounded him.
Discouraged, Christian looked away from the road at the soft grass of By-Path Meadow and took what he thought was a shortcut, another way to God. Moments later, he was thrown into a dark dungeon as a prisoner of
Giant Despair. Christian got a hard look at the hopelessness of other options and learned where they led---away from Christ.
Understanding who Jesus is will keep you from false, tempting choices. When compared to Jesus, all other options pale. Jesus said
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6 NASB).
Nothing else will do. No other course brings true and lasting rewards. There are no substitutes, no bypass. His love and forgiveness are all-sufficient.
He gives direction and purpose to your life. The way may be arduous at times, but it is the best route to a meaningful life.
We are told
in John 6:65-69
65 And He was saying, "For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me, unless it has been granted him from the Father."
66 As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew, and were not walking with Him anymore.
67 Jesus said therefore to the twelve, "You do not want to go away also, do you?"
68 Simon Peter answered Him, " Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life."
69 "And we believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God."
