I Am The Way (John 14:1-7)Tommy Boring, February 2, 2020
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Have you ever had anything to trouble you? It seems that we let every little thing to give us trouble. If there was any thought in your mind that God doesn’t love you, let this be a lesson. Jesus prayed until his sweat poured from His body because He knew what He was to do. He told us prior to this that where He was going, if we believed in Him we would be there also.
God is the I Am. He is the creator and therefore He can state the present and that He is the I Am. The one and only way, path to God is thru His son, Jesus. The path itself is Jesus. Isn’t great to know where you’re going? When you’re on a route and have the correct directions in order to get there, it makes your travel a lot easier. Now the path to salvation is straight and narrow. God doesn’t waver or change to which there is only one way to be saved. The devil is always changing, lying therefore his path is wavering and the gate is wide.
Death is sure to come no matter who you are. Death is not to be feared but what comes after death is what’s to be feared. The judgement of whether you’re lost or saved. Therefore the path on which you’ve chosen to travel is what’s to be feared. Being a Primitive Baptist will not get one into Heaven. You’re religion will send you to Hell.
Either you’re saved or you’re not. Either you’re on one path or the other, you can’t be on both. If you’re born again then you will always know the path because God will guide you. There will be many Baptists in Hell simply because they‘ve trusted in the wrong path. Jesus stated it plain and simple, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” There are many people out there saying there are many ways to get to God but this is ALL lies. It’s either Jesus or nothing.
Listening to your GPS, has it ever told you to go in the wrong direction? Wouldn’t it be nice if you knew if it was telling you the truth? To know that the path that you are on is right? At some point you must trust God to know that He is truth. Take away the religions and the thoughts of others and what you’re left with is yourself and the path. You’ll know the truth if you’ve been born again because God bares witness with your soul.
Thomas was more curious about his life and how to get to where Jesus was going. Thomas didn’t have what we have, the scriptures. They didn’t understand that Jesus was the life. Jesus told both Martha and His disciples that He was the I am. He is the life, the resurrection. Simply believe in Jesus Christ and it will get you to Heaven. For a Christian life is not here on earth but in Heaven above and they have no concern in death. The lost have a concern and should as their life on earth is the only heaven they will know compared to the eternal Hell they will be at death.

1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. (KJV)
