“In-N-Out” Bible Study 6: John 14:6

 in n out sgn

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 

Open Q: What causes you to fear or fuss or fret or stress? What do you think? 

Main Point: Jesus is the way to the Father. Jesus is exclusive, the only Gate to God! This is not just knowledge of God, rather an intimate connection that He first offers to us-a unity to us in His work for our redemption. This is also an invitation to radical faith. 

What does this mean? The “way” in Hebrew, refers to the pursuit of righteousness as one journeys through the wilderness of the tough times-even suffering. It is a beacon, and we are to focus on Christ. Truth means He fulfills the Law and teachings of the Old Testament. Life means there is no existence without Him and there is no salvation without His atonement, redemption, and grace. Christians were first called “the Way” (Matt. 7:14; John 1:1-4, 14; 3:16-18; 5:26, 33; 11:25-26; Acts 4:12; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 John 5:12).  

What can we do? Look to Christ!  All the blessings and wonder that we have and can have are locked up in Christ and He gives us the key of faith turned by our faith, commitment, and obedience.  

Challenge Questions: 

Q: What does it mean to you to Trust in God? 

Q: What can? 

Q: What do you lack to have more of a commitment to faith? 

How does this apply? There is only one True God and only One right way; Jesus is that Only way and path to God, Heaven, and real righteousness!  We do this in Christ alone by faith alone. No other aspect of what we can do such as “works,” can give us merit; rather, our salvation is the result of His working in us (John 1:23; Rom. 1:16; 10:4-17; James 2:14-26). 

Where is my Hope in this?  We can trust in Him totally and completely with all we have now and for our future. He is not just preparing a place for us in eternity, He is preparing us for eternity, too!  Fear, frustration, misunderstanding, expecting something else does not need to consume us. Our wholehearted commitment to faith and obedience to follow it up will be key (John 2:21).
