The paths at Camp Otyokwah, a 300-acre wooded Christian camp in Richland County, are often marked with indicators. You possibly can hike the paths and nonetheless discover your manner again to the primary tenting space, together with the sleeping cabins, the mess corridor and the quiet hour worship ledge. The indicators present us the best way – the best way again to the camp.
I discovered at that camp that Jesus Christ is the Method to everlasting life. My kids have been baptized there. God’s plan of salvation is known as “the best way of the Lord.” (Matt three:three). Thomas, one of many twelve apostles (Matthew 12:three), shortly earlier than the Ardour requested, “Lord, we don’t know the place You’re going, so how can we know how?” Jesus answered, “I’m the best way and the reality and the life. Nobody involves the Father besides by means of me.” John 14:6 NIV.

A memorable sporting occasion lodges in my thoughts, I used to be watching the 1988 World Sequence, which featured a Sport 1 unforgettable two-run, walk-off house run with 2 outs within the backside of the ninth inning for The Los Angeles Dodgers. The announcer, Jack Buck, spontaneously stated, “I don’t consider what I simply noticed.” And I additionally couldn’t consider what I simply noticed on TV.
I ponder if folks stated the identical factor once they witnessed the best occasion in human historical past – when Jesus rose from the useless. Over 500 folks noticed Him. Definitely, a few of the folks will need to have thought, “Wow, I can’t consider what I’m seeing.” Or, “I can’t consider what I simply noticed.” However many individuals did consider it. And Jesus backed up what He stated He was going to do. As a result of He’s the reality – “the physique of actual issues, details and occasions: ACTUALITY.” (Webster).
I’m the life.
God gave the breath of life to man, making him a residing soul (Gen 2:7). This life is a valuable reward and the taking of life is prohibited (Gen 9:5). It’s the reward of God by means of Jesus Christ (John three:36). It’s not interrupted by bodily loss of life (1 Thess. 5:10).
