Jesus the Way to the Father

The Bible discussion for today is taken from the Gospel of John 14:1-14.

Jesus the way to the Father is the key phrase for this Sunday's sermon throughout Papua New Guinea for Lutheran Churches. In this scripture Jesus interacted with his disciples and told them few words and his disciples asked him and he answered with explanations that would help his disciples understand well.


  • Jesus told them, "Believe in God and believe also in me. there are many rooms in my Father's house, I am going to prepare a place for you. I will come back and take you to myself, so that you will be where I am." (John 14:1-3)
  • Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know where you are going?"
  • Jesus answered him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me." (John 14:6)
  • Philip said to Jesus,"Lord, show us the Father, that is all we need."(John 14:8)
  • Jesus answered, "do you not believe, Philip, that i am in the Father and the Father is in me?" (John 14:10)
  • Jesus further said to them that, I am telling you the truth: those who believe in me will do what I do - yes, they will even do greater things, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask for in my name, so that the Father's glory will be shown through the Son. If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:12-14)
There are many points which anyone can figure out in this scripture which you can add in comments. Here are few take outs from this scripture.
  • Jesus told his disciples that he was going to go to his Father to prepare for a place for them. . Jesus told them that he will come back to take them to the place where he is. This message is also for us at this time too.  There are few questions we can ask for self assessment of our lives while living on Earth. Are we prepared to meet Jesus and go with him when he comes back in the clouds of Glory? What shall we do to be prepared? 
  • Jesus also told his disciples that : He is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, no one goes to the Father except by him. So how can we go through Jesus to the Father?
  • Jesus actually explained to clarify the doubts in his disciples' mind which are in the Gospel of John 14:13-14 . Jesus said to them, Those who believe in me will do what I do, and they will do even greater things. I will do what ever you ask in my name, so that the Father's glory will be shown through the Son.
So we go through Jesus by hearing the word of God, believe in the word of God, obey God's commandments and do all the good things that Jesus taught us to do which are captured in various scriptures in the Holy Bible. We repent everyday and pray to God to forgive our sins in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and by the Grace of God he will forgive use and cleanse us with the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ and make us to be his children and ready to meet Jesus Christ when he comes back in the clouds of Glory as King to take us to where he is.

May the Peace of the Lord be with you!

Amen
