Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Way
    Jesus said to him,
    "I am the way, the truth, and the life.
    No one comes to the Father except through Me."
    John 14:6
    Jesus is the Way to Heaven; there is no other way to get there. Will you follow the Way today? Because Jesus is the Way, He invited some fishermen, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men” (Mark 1:17). He invited Matthew, the tax collector, “Follow Me” (Mark 2:14). Because Jesus is the Way, He still wants people to follow Him today.
    Lord, I’ve always been independent. As a child, I’d pull at my parent’s hand to run ahead. When I got mad, I’d pout and refuse to keep up. But today, I submit my will to You. Teach me to follow You.
    Just as Jesus left His footprints on the sandy beach of Lake Galilee, today He wants to leave His influence in every place in life. Jesus will do it through you. Are your “footprints” leaving an influence for Jesus in the places you walk? When you help another, Jesus wants them to realize that He’s been there. When you share the gospel with another, He wants the listeners to realize He’s been there. Jesus is the Way; when you don’t know where to walk or how to walk, look to Him for direction. His way on Earth was not always easy; neither will your way always be comfortable, but it’s worth it. Let Him walk through your life. As you follow His way, you will leave His footprints in the lives of others.
    Lord, I’ll follow You through ease or difficulty. I only ask that You go with me and help me. Amen.
    Go Deeper: Mark 1:16-20; 2:13-17
    Jesus asks you to follow His way.
