The way, the truth, and the life.
In today’s society, what a bold thing it is to say that no matter what goes on around me, I’m turning to Jesus. He said Himself He is the way, the truth, and the life.
The way: when you aren’t sure where to go next, turn to Jesus.
The truth: when everything around you is meaningless and negative noise, turn to Jesus to find the truth.
The life: when you feel there is no hope left and no purpose out of your pain, turn to Jesus to receive life.
See folks, the thing is, this world will try with all its might to be louder than Jesus’ small whisper. This world will tell you to find your worth in success, in bad relationships, in partying, or in your outward appearance. But Jesus tells us the opposite of what the world does. The answer to whatever problem you are going through will always be to turn to Jesus.
Not sure what your purpose is? Turn back to the one who designed your purpose. Find yourself down a path that leads to death and destruction? Turn back to the one who will give you life, and give it to you abundantly. Jesus is the ONLY truth. What He says about you is the only truth. What He did for you on cavalry that day is the only rescue you need. His yolk is easy and His burden is light.
The devil will try and make everything else look like the right way. He will lead you down a path of sin and death, and of course he makes it look fun and enjoyable (for a season).
Satan will tell you that God just wants you to be happy and that Jesus died on the cross so you could be free to do as you please. But that is so far from the truth.
Jesus instructs us to pick up our cross daily and follow Him. He tells us to love Him first and to love others second. God is a just God which is why the cross had to take place. God doesn’t want to force us to love Him, He wants to gently show us He is worth it and so much more.
If you ever find yourself lost, broken, or full of shame — turn back to the one who brought the cure for the disease of pain. Jesus is hope and restoration. He is the way, the truth, and the life, and nobody goes to the Father except through Him.
As the saying goes, the Bible is our basic instruction before leaving earth… now is the time to use it.
Just as this song says, “All my fears and doubts, they can all come too, because they can’t stay long when I believe that you are… the Way, the Truth, the Life…”
Hannah Smith, author of the Moving Mountains blog, is a woman who feels she has experienced a lot of life in her 30 years.
At 19 years old, Hannah joined the Army. After moving around the country, getting a divorce and losing what seemed like everything, she landed back where God wanted her in Ohio, even though she fought the whole way. She is now in charge of the prayer team at her church and seeks the Lord with all she’s got.
Hannah is married and a RN, but works as a stay-at-home mom to her daughter, Isabella, and her son, Grayson.
She loves to hike, travel, drink coffee, and talk about Jesus. Hannah also has a heart to create a home and life in which she can be a safe place for the hurting and the broken.
To her readers, Hannah says, “I believe that God set every single one of you reading this apart, for such a time as this. It is my hope and prayer that God would use the words I say to change your life in a way you and I never thought possible!”
