The real Forward
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
The Way. From an article in Relevant, June 19, 2002, “being a follower of the way is not a path to travel, but rather a pattern to follow, an example, if you will.
“In order to follow the way we have to be like the way, imitate the way. We need to pay careful attention of the life of the way and let people see that in us.”
The way forward is action, to do like Christ, to follow His lead. It’s having Christ as a role model and behaving like He showed us. Jesus was a man of action, not if hand ringing. He was a powerful, humble servant, not a man of condescending self-righteousness.
In verse 12, Jesus tells us “very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing….”
Get up and act. Be visible and let your words and actions show who you follow, the way you walk your life.
