2. Jesus is the Way to the Father.
Jesus said to him, “ I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 (NKJV) Jesus is the way, the only way, but to who? Many times, believers accept Christ, but never make the step into connection with Father God. Jesus is creating an invitation here. He’s saying, I’m the way to the Father. I’m the way. If you want to know Father God, you have to go through the pathway of Me. Jesus is not only the way to the Father, His life of demonstration shows us how to live in the ways of the Father.
Jesus is the truth. This truth points you to a healthy relationship with the Father. The truth keeps you from listening to the father of lies and it keeps you resting in Father God’s love for you.
Jesus is the truth that will gird you so that what you think about, your perception in interacting with Father God is going to be based on what is true. Many people avoid the Father because of lies they have believed. Their father lens is broken. Jesus as the truth, seeks to invade those lies so that you can interact without hindrance to the Father.
3. Jesus Demonstrated the Father’s Heart.
He who has seen Me has seen the Father . . . John 14:9 (NKJV) You cannot live the Christian life without connecting to God’s heart in matters. Otherwise, cynicism, legalism and Pharisaical arrogance will penetrate the heart. Many believers are seeking to follow the ways of God without understanding the Father’s heart towards us.
When you get the heart of the Father towards this world–everything changes. When you see Jesus, you see the Father’s heart. You witness how the Father actually sees people and situations. Watching Jesus tells you what the Father is like, because He operated in oneness with the Father’s heart. All of our theology and spiritual perspectives need to run through the lens of who Jesus Christ is. And everything He is points back to the heart of the Father. When you watch Him, you can say, “That’s what our Father is like.”
