Jn 14:1-7 “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.” Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Believe in God and believe also in me.  In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.  If it were not so, would have I told you that I go to prepare a place for you.  I will come again and take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.  And you know the place where I am going.  Thomas said to Him, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.  If you know me, you will know my Father also.  From now on, you do know Him and have seen Him.  (Jn 14: 1-7).


We worry too much —- about the coming weather, what we have to eat, what we are going to wear, what lies for us in the future.  It was very clear:  “Believe in God and believe also in Jesus.”

Is it difficult to decipher, “Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.”  He is the only Way to eternal life, no matter what logic we present—-oh it’s alright, I just follow this and that because it’s the penchant of my heart!  The logical goal is heaven unless one really likes to go somewhere else.  God grants the freedom to each one of us!  But to be in heaven at the appointed time will be blissful as the Holy Bible attest:  “No eye has seen, no ear has heard for the ones who love Jesus.”

The Lord Jesus is the Truth!  There is no falsity in his Words.  For how can the Son of God say otherwise.  Jesus is the reflection of God the Father.  If Jesus is the Truth, why not follow the Truth?  No loss, but gain!

Jesus is the Life!  Do we choose death over life?  That’s why when someone is in slavery of depression or drugs, God saves!  It is because God likes us to live our life to the full.  Do we like to have eternal life?  Eternal is infinite, never-ending...
