An explorer became lost in a dangerous part of an African jungle. His compass was of no use because he did not know where he was or which direction to travel. He became desperate and was filled with fear when a native appeared and offered to take him to his camp.
Hesitatingly, but hopeful, he asked, “Do you know the way?”
Confidently the native replied, “I am the way.”
People all around us are lost and looking for direction for their lives. The world has many maps and GPS systems but they offer no final destination that provides salvation, peace and hope. They are searching, even seeking desperately, and trying anything and everything, to discover a way out of their fear and hopelessness.
They need to hear the words of Jesus, “I am the way, the truth and the life.” In Him we have the direction we need for living here and hereafter.
Prayer: Father, thank You for being our Savior and Guide. Help us to lead others to You, the Way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
