JESUS SENT YOU TO BE THE WAY!
So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you” (John 20:21).
Every Christian is expected to know that he is the way to the Father in life. A Christian is no longer looking for the way because he is already in Jesus Christ- the only way to the Father in life. Your duty as a Christian is to bring many to Christ Jesus who is indeed the Way to the Father in life. You as the way are standing in the gap pointing the world to Jesus Christ in life. Jesus Christ said in the opening text that peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that Jesus Christ sent him to be the way to the world in life. Jesus Christ has sent you as a Christian to also be the way to the Father in life. A Christian is indeed the way through Jesus Christ to the heavenly Father in life forever.
The Word of God states it vividly that Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father in life. That is why the Bible says in John 14:6, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Therefore, Jesus Christ is of course the only way to the heavenly Father both here and even hereafter in life. Anyone who accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is already in the way to the Father because Christ Jesus is the only mediator between man and God in life (1 Timothy 2:5). It is only through Jesus Christ a Christian becomes an ambassador of peace and a mediator to the heavenly Father in life forever.
Jesus Christ, who is the only way to the Father, has also commissioned you to point others to the Father in life. This is the ministry of reconciliation which had been commissioned into your hand thus, “Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:18). In fact, every Christian is indeed called into the ministry of reconciliation by pointing the sinful world to Jesus Christ in life. A Christian is Jesus Christ’s ambassador winning souls into God’s kingdom in life. He is also the shining light of God that shines even brighter in the darkness of life forever (Matthew 5:14).
Daily Tip: A Christian is in Christ Jesus pointing others to the heavenly Father through the ministry of reconciliation in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Then saviors shall come to Mount Zion to judge the mountains of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s (Obadiah 1:21).
