An explorer became lost in a dangerous part of an African jungle. His compass was of no use to him 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, with no options, but hopeful, he asked, “Do you know the way?”
Confidently the native replied, “I am the way.”
People all around us are lost, seeking directions, and “looking for the way” for their lives. The world has many maps and GPS systems, but they offer no final destination that provides salvation, peace, and security. They are searching and seeking desperately, 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 directions we need for our life here and the life to come.
Prayer: Father, thank You for being “the Way” - our Savior and Guide. Help us to lead others to You, so they will know the Way, the Truth, and have life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: John 14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
