Names of Christ: Who do you say that I am?

14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe[a] in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?[b] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way to the place where I am going.”[c] Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know[d] my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”

John 14:1-7

In one of my favorite scriptures, Jesus refers to himself as “the way, the truth, and the life.”

Jesus told and lived the truth about who God was, what God’s love meant, and how we are to live out God’s love in our lives.

As I immerse myself in His words, reading again this year in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and seeing how he showed us God in human flesh, many of the things I encounter in this world on a daily basis seem to come into focus and make more sense.


Lord Jesus, thank You for sharing the truth with us in Your Word, so that our lives can be rich and full as we follow You. Amen.
