Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”.
There is a popular saying that all roads lead to Rome. In ancient times, when the Roman Empire was the dominant power, it was obvious that the center of it all was what came to be called the Eternal City. Today it can be that the gravitational center of world politics has shifted outside the Italian peninsula. Many say now that New York is the capital of the world. Both to go to Rome in ancient times or to go today to New York there are many paths. However, to go to God there is only one way and is called Jesus Christ.
Throughout history, mankind has used multiple paths trying to reach God. Some have made images to which worship, or honor. Others think the right way is to be a good person. Some more say God is in us and if we look within ourselves we reach God. In each of these cases, there is a whole set of philosophies and religious rites that most of the time are useless to achieve the objective of reaching God.
Since God himself has left written instructions relate to Him, it is much simpler to go to that primary source and follow the instructions. Fortunately, Scripture is not so difficult and complex for anyone not understand. The only impediment that limits us in understanding the Bible is that we exclude its divine author while reading. Returning to our topic today, John 14:6 explains by itself. When we combine these three words: way, truth and life, there is only one person who put them together in Himself, Jesus Christ. As he himself told us, Jesus of Nazareth is the only path that leads to a relationship with God. He is also the truth that sets us free. He’s also the plentiful and permanent life that God the Father designed for His maximum creation, man.
In my life as a scientist, I felt that something was missing in me; I felt that there were huge gaps in my being that could not be filled with what I was doing. My search ended when I had a personal encounter with Jesus and from that moment, my mind and my heart gave a radical change because I could find my way, I could be free from the doubt to know the truth and could experience the abundant life He came to give us.
Today I can safely say that the gospel is not a hypothesis, a theorem or a scientific theory that needs to be demonstrated to convince unbelievers. The gospel is the truth of the Son of the living God, who took our place on the cross to redeem us. The gospel is the knowledge that the same Jesus Christ crucified and humiliated, was also raised from the dead by the glory of God the Father. Therefore, the gospel does not need to be defended or demonstrated but proclaimed. In this relativistic world where everything depends on the reference scale, the gospel is an absolute truth and was demonstrated at the empty tomb of Jesus of Nazareth. God bless you.
