“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 NIV
We live in a world where diversity, tolerance, and equality dominate public discourse. In an environment like that it can be challenging to embrace today’s bible verse because it seems insensitive and narrow minded.
This is where we need to trust God’s wisdom and lean not in our own understanding. First of all in every successful team/unit there are rankings, order, and hierarchy. Yes, all the members/players are equal but not play the same roles nor do whatsoever they feel like doing.
There’s equality in God: we are all sinners and incapable of getting our lives together in our own. There’s tolerance in God: he exercises patience with us, not wanting that any of us would be lost forever. There’s diversity in God: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, three in one.
However above all there’s LOVE in God. It is in love God makes it clear that no one gets to him if not through the Son. Jesus is the way. He’s not in the way. Jesus is not the obstacle, but the way itself.
