Names of Jesus – The Life

Names of Jesus - The LifeIn John 14:6, Jesus said that He is the way, the truth, and the life. He is The Way – the only way to the Father. He is The Truth, and He came to show us the truth of God’s love and grace for each one of us. He is also The Life.

We all have sinned (Romans 3:23), the wages of which is death (Romans 6:23). Romans 5:12 states that through one man – that man being Adam – sin entered the world, and through sin, death. Also that death came to all in this way, for all have sinned. The good news of the gospel is that even while we were dead in our transgressions, God made us alive with Christ (Ephesians 2:4-5).

Jesus came to save us by giving His life for us at the cross. One died for all. All died, therefore (2 Corinthians 5:14). Because He died in our place, His death was our death. We have been raised with Christ (Colossians 3:1). We have been given new life in Him. He is The Life. All who believe in Him possess life everlasting (John 3:16).

Our Savior came that we might have life more abundant (John 10:10). He wants to give us life in every area – mentally, physically, financially, and in every other way, as well as spiritually, in our relationship with Him. He wants us to experience the abundant life He came to give us.

Though we were once dead in our sins, we have been made alive with Christ. He gives us, His sheep, eternal life (John 10:28). He desires for us to enjoy life more abundant in every area of our lives. Come to Him, and receive an abundance of life for your every area of lack!

Names of Jesus – The Way

Names of Jesus - The Way

The Way – John 14:6

In John 14:6, Jesus calls Himself the way, the truth, and the life, declaring that no one comes to the Father except through Him.

Our Savior is The Way – the only way to God. Our Heavenly Father loved us so much that He wanted us to be His children, so He sent Jesus to make a way for us to come to Him. It is by His blood that we have been justified (Romans 5:9). In Him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 1:7). Through faith in Him, we are made right with God (Romans 3:22). Christ is the gate, and those who enter through Him are saved (John 10:9)!

Salvation is found in Christ alone. There is no other name by which mankind is saved (Acts 4:12). Nowhere and to no one else can we go to find a relationship with the one true God. It is found only in His Son, who gave His life for us at the cross.

Jesus, our Savior, is The Way. He made a way for us to be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). It is through Him, and only through Him, that we are saved!

“One way, Jesus, You’re the only one that I could live for!”
