“I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father, but through me.” (John14:6)
In our modern day social conversation, OUR JOURNEY has gotten a lot of press. Imagining the potential of our story, and where it will lead us, captures the wonder in our hearts. But…we only imagine one version of our story—a perfect story.
A true journey, on the other hand, is not a journey unless it is filled with both the good and the bad. We would not know life unless the opposing forces of death loomed real over our existence. Health has no reality without the battle of disease. There would be no victory without the experience of defeat. Although our journey may have a direction, anticipating our story’s chapters is anything but predictable.
When truly embraced for what it is, journey gives new meaning to Jesus’ words when He says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6) These words point not only to the intellectual agreement that grants us eternal life, but to a lifestyle under Jesus’ reign, no matter what we must go through to get to the end.
Without doubt, we will all walk out a unique journey of our choosing. And, yes, it will be a testimony to bless others. But…we might not have as much to say about the details as we think.
