Devotion for Thursday after Lent 4


“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 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. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. ~ John 14:1-10

How can anyone say that Jesus was a great teacher but not the Lord or that there are many paths to God? In this passage, Jesus told us positively that He is the only Way to the God—no one comes to God the Father except through Jesus the Son. Any other claim to be a path to God is a fraud, a lie, a deception.

Father God, Jesus my Savior, and Holy Ghost my Comforter, I give my life to Jesus for Him to lead me to the Father and for the Holy Ghost to dwell within me. How amazing that You love me so much that You want to live within me in this life and let me live with You in Heaven for eternity. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Amen.
