Morning Devotions with Chaplain Kenny - Jesus is the way, the truth and the life


Jesus is the way, the truth and the life

Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
~ John 14:8-9 (NIV)

We all know that God was revealed in Jesus. One who has seen Jesus effectively has seen the Father. One who has faith and believes in Jesus believes the Father and shall do the works of Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God, the only truth that sets our being free and the eternal life that is to be lived here and now. God expressed Himself through our sinless Jesus. Everything that Jesus was, what He said and did, was a revelation of Who God is.

In the present age that Jesus is physically not with us, how shall the Father reach out to His children?

Our heavenly Father will undoubtedly go through Christ’s disciples, those who follow Jesus and are one with Him. They are those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and the True Messiah. They have acknowledged Jesus’ order to preach His Word to the ends of the earth. They have taken it upon themselves to bring God to all men and they do good and godly acts. Jesus placed upon their shoulders the responsibility of saving souls of men and the establishment of His Universal Church. Their works are greater indeed but all in the Name of Jesus and with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

But in order for a disciple of Jesus to do all His works, one has to be in close union and fellowship with Him such that His love, mercy and forgiveness flow through them. They should be One with Christ much the same that Jesus is One with Father.

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life”. If we have to pursue the work of Jesus, then our lives should be able to witness Christ in us. We should be able to show the way to salvation, the truth that has set us free and the life of grace that has brought us to be one and in communion with God and His people.

Working for Jesus can only bless our lives and assure us a close union with Him. It will amount to our fruitfulness and the assurance that we have our God Who is always there for all of us. He promised: “Whatever you ask in my name I will do, so as to glorify the Father in the Son.”

Let us show Christ to all men as “the way, the truth and the life” by always being in a prayerful state for such brings us closer and in union with God. A prayerful heart is the way whereby God comes to us, transforms us and makes us more like His Son. Such brings one to a realization that our God has always been by our side Who hears even our unspoken prayers and our deepest longings. Jesus said: “Anything you ask me in my name I will do.”
Heavenly Father, help me make your kindness, your faithfulness and our salvation in Jesus be known to all the nations. In His Mighty Name I pray. Amen.
In Jesus,
Chaplain Kenny
