PATHWAY TO SPIRITUALITY

 

The pathway to spirituality is so unique for each of us! So many books and articles have been written to show and guide this path to salvation. It is important for each one of us to explore and advance on the  spiritual pathway. But for most of us the directions to this path is elusive. We are blinded by the darkness and cannot see the path. Why not?

In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father but by me”. This verse says it all! Our Lord, Jesus, explains to his disciples about the place he was going - The place where he will be with the Father. He instructs that there is also place for all of us to be united once again with our Father. But key to this very salvation, he says, “...I am the way”.

Accepting Christ is the first step for Jesus is not merely the way, but he is the way of salvation itself by his obedience and sacrifice. Through him is bestowed all the blessings of the covenant of grace. He also enlightens us by revealing the fact that no one comes rightly into a church of Christ but by faith in him. He is the way to heaven and has opened the way to it through himself for his people. The path is clear for all of us for he has wiped clean our sins through his own blood.

The pathway to spirituality thus can be illuminated by Jesus’ love that reflects from our heart. The path will be lighted if we only believe and allow his love to flow through us.
