The story is told of a missionary who got lost in an African jungle, nothing around him but bush and a few cleared places. He found a native hut and asked the native if he could get him out. The native said he could.
“All right,” said the missionary, “show me the way.”
The native said, “Walk,” so they walked and hacked their way through unmarked jungle for more than an hour.
The missionary got worried. “Are you quite sure this is the way? Where is the path?”
The native said, “Bwana, in this place there is no path. I am the path.”
I think that it in John chapter 6 Peter has one of his more honest and great moments. His guard was down because so many people were leaving Jesus. They were leaving because, quite frankly, things were getting a little too difficult. So, Jesus asks the twelve, are you going to leave me as well? Then Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God” (John 6:68-69). Peter speaks for all the faithful. Because in this world there is no path – Jesus is the Path! That is why Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (Jn. 14:6).
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
