 MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

"I AM THE WAY"

 

[part 3 of 8]

 

 

*____The Incarnation of Jesus is the master stroke of love.

 

____It was God's intrusion into the sense realm where man began to live, when driven from the Garden.

 

____God unveiled Himself to the senses of the Jewish Nation. They had no spiritual appreciation because they were spiritually dead.

 

____Jesus in His earth walk revealed to the men of the senses who surrounded Him, a strange, a phenomenal thing: He talked with God Almighty, the God of the Jews, with a sense of intimacy that they couldn't understand, and finally He called their God, His Father.

 

____To them, that was blasphemy, and they stoned Him for it; they hounded Him until finally they took Him before Pontius Pilate and accused Him saying, "He makes God His Father; that's blasphemy, and He ought to die."

 

____Jesus paid the price of confessing God as His Father.

 

____But before He did that, one day He said, as recorded in John 14:6: "I am the Way, and the truth and the life."

 

____I remembered that Acts 9:2 is the story of Paul's being sent to Damascus with authority to arrest any that he found who were of "the Way."

 

____And then in Acts 19:9: "But when some were hardened and disobedient, speaking evil of 'the Way' before the multitude."

 

____Acts 19:23: "And about that time there arose no small stir concerning 'the Way'."

 

____Acts 18:26 tells the story of how Priscilla and Aquila heard Apollos, a disciple of John the Baptist, who had not yet heard of Jesus, and they "expounded unto him the Way of God."

 

____The same thought is brought out again in Acts 22:4: "And I persecuted this 'Way' unto the death." Paul here is standing before the People of Jerusalem, telling how he had persecuted "the Way."

 

____Paul is again defending himself in Acts 24:14: "But this I confess unto thee, that after 'the Way' which they call a sect, so serve I the God of our Fathers."

 

____These scriptures were puzzling.

 

____Why did he call it "the Way?"

 

____"The Holy Spirit this signifying, that the way into the holy place hath not yet been made manifest, while the first tabernacle is yet standing." (Heb. 9:8)

 

____This began to throw light on it as "the Way" into the Holy of Holies.

 

____But Heb. 10:19-20 clears it up. "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by the Way which he dedicated for us, a New and Living Way, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh."

 

____Now we can understand it.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
