THE JOSHUA CODE | WEEK 29

Happy Monday evening.. hope you all are off to a good start for the week?! Glad you stopped by to keep up with the JOSHUA CODE with me!

Here is this weeks verses:

w e e k -  t w e n t y  n i n e

" I am the way, the truth, and the life. 
No one comes to the Father except through Me."  

j o h n   1 4  :  6
. . . 

THE QUESTION OF PUBLIC CONSENSUS 
 Jesus asked: 'Who do men say that I am, the Son of Man, am?' (Matthew 16:13). [] Many today never seem to be able to get out of this verse. They simply live in a world that is much more interested in what men say than in what God says. […] Unfortunately, things haven't changed much. We still live in a world that seems to be far more interested in what men say about Jesus that what God says. 

THE QUESTION OF PERSONAL CONVICTION 
Then the Lord got up close and personal. He asked another question: "But who to you say that I am?" (Matthew 16:15). Do you see it? This is the question of personal conviction: 'what about you? You.. and only you. You and you alone. You and no one else. Who do you say that I am?' This is the question with eternal ramifications. It is the question that each and every one of us must face. […] 
Jesus is that only way to the Father's house. Indeed, He- and He alone - is "the way, the truth, and the life." And no one comes to the Father's house unless they come through Jesus! 

pages 152-155
. . .

'As you memorize this verse, meditate on how Christ is the way… how He is the truth… and how He is the life. 
Don't find yourself being more interested in what men say that in what God says. He is still asking today, "Who do you say that I am?" '

pg 155
