Life in the Cross of Christ…

30 Dec


John 14: 6,”Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

While studying the Word of God, it is very important for every student of the Bible to know exactly what the Messiah is saying to His Disciples both then and now. This is not only important for building our Faith in the Cross of Christ, but also when it comes to ministering to the world and edifying the body of Christ. Jesus in John 14:6, touches on three very important aspects in which all of mankind is redeemed through His perfect sacrifice on the Cross. Jesus states that He is the way, truth and the life in order to be made right in the eyes of God. We will break down first in THE WAY that mankind is made right with God, which is taking on His righteous and accepting the Messiah as Lord and Savior of our life. All men due to the fall of Adam and Eve are born into sin and shaped in iniquity, separated from God the Father.

All, when we are birthed into this world have no sense of right or wrong adhering more at times to our flesh rather than the Spirit of God. This thorn in the flesh called sin, causes all to fall short of the Holiness of Jehovah and the original divine plan that was laid out for us as children of God. The Holy Bible states that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) which guarantees all eternal separation from God, that is until we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. Christ is the only one to walk the Earth truly pure and innocent in the eyes of God never knowing any sin as read in 2 Corinthians 5:21, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” Jesus instead took our sins to the cross, 1 Peter 2:24 states, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” God’s word never changes.

In His love for us a sacrifice had to be made, with that being Jesus Christ the only one pure enough to wash away every sin and redeem corrupted man. The second aspect of John 14:6, is that the Messiah is THE TRUTH, that fulfilled old testament prophecy. Jesus being born of a virgin as read in Isaiah 7:14 is fulfilled in Matthew 1:20-23. The Old testament says Jesus would be of the House of Judah in Isaiah 37:31 fulfilled in Matthew 1:1-2, 16. Isaiah 9:1-2 says Christ would from Nazareth of Galilee and documented in Matthew 2:22-23.The betrayal for 30 pieces of silver in Zechariah 11:12, fulfilled in Matthew 26:14-15. Along the mission to the Gentiles for salvation as recorded inIsaiah 49:1-4, 6 and fulfilled in Matthew 12:14-21.

Last in John 14: 6 Jesus is THE LIFE.This quality is always the most often overlooked in a Christians life. 2 Peter 1:5-9, which reads, “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.” The above list are moral attributes to govern our lives by that all in the Faith of Jesus Christ must allow to overflow in our lives, along with FORGIVENESS. Once we realize the debt we could not pay, but He who could (THE WAY) and (THE TRUTH) of He that came and how to live our lives (THE LIFE) we will finally see Jehovah the Father! Shalom…
