John 14:6 – Verse of the Day 10/20/14
Why did Jesus take on human flesh and live on this earth? There are many answers to that question, but what is the most important reason? True wisdom comes through knowing the answer to this question, and the answer is one of the last things that Jesus gave to his disciples.
This verse comes at the beginning of Jesus’ last conversation with his disciples. Jesus wants us to understand that his coming to earth and his work of salvation are so closely tied together they can never be separated. There is no other way to the Father except through faith in His Son. As a result, there is great comfort available for those who do know the Son. Those who have communion with the God the Son likewise have communion with God the Father.
As you pray, think about the mercy God showed you when He called you to believe the truth. Ask the Lord to help you believe, and also to desire to follow Him in “the way.” Consider whether there are any areas of your life that do not follow God’s desires for you, and ask God to forgive you and help you to follow Him. Praise God for his infinite grace in revealing to you the truth of His salvation.
