The Bible verse today is a favorite Bible verse scripture about salvation.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me. I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor that he may be with you forever, – the Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive; for it doesn’t see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you”.
John 14: 6-7
Favorite Bible verses can be found in John 14 and John 15. These beautiful Bible verses in John’s Gospel are full of words of love from Jesus. Bible verses of hope, comfort and faith can all be found.
Jesus had just explained to His followers that He was to depart speaking this very famous couple of verses:
“Don’t let your heart be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many homes. If it weren’t so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will receive you to myself; that where I am, you may be there also”.
These scriptures reassure us to not be troubled whilst Jesus is gone and to wait patiently for His return. There is also the reassurance that Jesus is preparing a wonderful home for us in Heaven. It is hard to imagine how beautiful Heaven must be but it has been said that if God took only seven days to create Earth and the Universe, Heaven must indeed be a fabulous place since Jesus has been gone for 2000 years!
There was a Jewish tradition in ancient times where the bridegroom would go away and build a house for his bride before returning for her. His return was never known for sure and she would wait expectantly for him. What joy it must have been when he returned and the wedding celebration could finally begin.
It is no coincidence that the church, (Christian believers from every nation and from every time in history), can be referred to as the bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:25). In the last book of the Bible, the book of Revelations there is ordained, at the end of this age, a great event called the Marriage supper of the Lamb (Revelations 19:9).
While we wait expectantly for Christ’s return, we have the promise of the Holy Spirit abiding in us who will lead us in all Truth. Indeed Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and nobody comes to the Father except by Him. As we trust in the Holy Spirit to teach us we will see the reality of this day by day.
Thank you Father that you sent Jesus as the way, the truth and the life and that we have the precious Holy Spirit to lead us in all truth. I could read all the earthly books in the world written by flawed men and women to find truth but my efforts would be in vain. Thank you that I have the Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth and counsel me. In pray in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
