John 14:1-6
I am the way and the truth and the life. (John 14:6)

   Jesus is the way. He is the perfect Son of the Father who did only what the Father told Him to do. He didn’t cling to His own vision of the way His life should go. In this, He showed us the way to live. He loved the Father with complete trust. He knew that He was in his Father’s hands, and it was there that He rested. Now ascended to heaven, Jesus calls us to live the way He lived – in trust and surrender to our Father’s call. He will teach us, guide us, mold us, and make us into His children. He will show us how to rest in His presence, just as Jesus did.

   Jesus is the truth. Every word He spoke was the truth. When He made a promise, it was fulfilled. Every miracle He performed, every parable He told, every sermon He preached demonstrates the love our heavenly Father has for us and the way He wants us to live; in love with each other. Everything that Jesus did as He walked the earth, as well as all that He does now as He works in and through His Church, is a proclamation of this love. This truth is the foundation for the whole of creation – it is the foundation for each of our lives.

   Jesus is the life. To know Jesus is to be fully alive because He has given us a share in His own divine life. Whenever we receive Communion, we receive this divine life into our own fallen hearts. Imagine: Jesus has chosen to live in us. He has chosen to place His own life in our hearts and to make that life the wellspring of our own lives. He comes to satisfy our deepest needs and to rejoice with us at every good gift. He comes to teach us, to fill us, and to guide us.

   Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. In Him, we lack nothing. He has given us so much more than pardon for our sins. He has given us a whole new way of living, a life in union with His heavenly Father. Don’t be afraid to reach out and grasp it today!

Jesus, I love You. Open my eyes to see and know You more. Open my heart to receive Your life more deeply today!”
Acts 13:26-33
Psalm 2:6-11
