John 14:5-6 – Jesus saith, “I Am…”

John 14:5-6
5
 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

-Thomas asked the Lord a very good question; “How can we know the way?”  With His answer, Jesus establishes the answer to all of life’s questions.  Simply put, Jesus is the answer.  How can we know the way?  Jesus said, “I am the way.”  To know Jesus is to know the way.  Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” (John 18:38)  Jesus said, “I am the truth.”  To know Jesus is to know the truth.  What is humanity’s biggest question?  What’s the meaning of life?  Jesus said, “I am the life.”  To know Jesus is to know life.  Jesus’ reply in John 14:6 also gives us a destination.  The Father.  What will we find at the end of the way, and the end of the truth, and at the end of life?  The Father; and “no man cometh unto the Father, but by [Jesus].”
