I AM: THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE

JOHN 14:1-6

JOHN 14:1-6

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.2 In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so, [b]I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me

We like a plan.

He says that he is .

He doesn’t say that he is “a” way or one way but he declares to be the only way to Heaven.

The world uses GPS, not Global Positioning System but .

When we work off of our own GPS we go astray.

Isaiah 53:6

“All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”

MATHEW 5:3-11

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the [
a]earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

1 CORINTHIANS 6:9-11 

 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]homosexuals, nor [b]sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were [c]sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

Mathew 7:13-14

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 [a]Because narrow is the gate and [b]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

We live in the generation.

We need to live in the generation.

We need to be filled with  

Philippians 4:6

 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 

Jeremiah 17:9

“The heart is deceitful above all things,
And [
a]desperately wicked;
Who can know it?

The word deceitful means: dishonest, mendacious, untruthful, unworthy of truth or belief, implies a willful perversion of truth in order to deceive, cheat, or fraud.

Ezekiel 36:22-27

22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. 23 And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the Lord,” says the Lord God, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes. 24 For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.

Genesis 2:15-17

15, then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.16, and the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “ of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die”.

And Paul tells us in romans 5:12 that sin and death entered the world and spread to all men through Adam’s sin. 

1 John1:8  says that if we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Paul goes on in Romans 6:23 and says that the wages of sin are death.

What does that mean?

It means that we all have earned death. We have sinned against a eternal God so we all deserve eternal death. 

Sin us from God. 

Colossians 2:13

 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
Sin leads to death. The only way to escape that death is to come to Jesus through faith, drawn by the Holy Spirit. Faith in Christ leads to spiritual life, and ultimately to eternal life.

So to sum it all up 

When we try to do things on our own it leads to 

Going

Telling

Spiritual

Just like there is a that worldly GPS, godless personal solutions, there is a holy GPS as well. 

The Holy GPS is  

When we follow Jesus he:

Leads us the

Turns our to the truth

Gives us .
