He is the way… is He yours…?

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me. …”
John 14:6 ESV
by Eugene Peterson

Way: a simple noun designating a road that leads to a destination, but then opening up as a metaphor that ramifies into many and various “ways”— not only the way we go, as in the route we take, but the way we go on the way whether by foot or bike or automobile. The way we talk, the way we use our influence, the way we treat one another, the way we raise our children, the way we read, the way we worship, the way we vote, the way we garden, the way we ski, the way we feel, the way we eat…. And on and on, endlessly, the various and accumulated “ways and means” that characterize our way of life.

—Eugene Peterson, The Jesus Way

Jesus is the Way
The destination… the Father…
There is no other way…

Peterson says… if Jesus is our way… then no part of our life will go unaffected… unchanged…

What is your way…? is it Jesus…?

How do we know what His Way is…?

We find out His Way… in His Word…
He is the Word made flesh…
He shows us the way to live it out…

But if we don’t know His Word…
how will we know His Way…?

I started The Jesus Way a couple of days ago…
it’s been sitting on my shelf for years…
but it caught my attention…
it must be time to read it…

The church… for the most part… doesn’t seem to be following Him… or give much credence to His Word of late… it’s made me wonder… What way are they going…?

He alone is the way to truth… to life… to the Father…

Me…? I want His Way…
What about you…?

Father God… use this read… and Your Word…
to help me learn… and follow…
the Jesus Way…
Amen…
